The rapid development of science, technology and information has created a form of cultural communication “without barriers and boundaries” between countries. Mutual influence on one another in the creation of works of art is unavoidable, thus creating works of art that are cross-cultural. This phenomenon is the spirit of the transcultural era, so that it becomes a challenge for the Indonesian people, especially in the formation of identity. The case study in this article is the Manifesto VIII Art Exhibition, which will be held at the National Gallery of Indonesia (GNI) in 2022, which has the theme Transposition. The study will focus on 2 (two) contemporary female artists, namely Lenny Ratnasari Weichert, Two Worlds, 2021 and Kartika Oktorina (Kae), Pixelyviridae, 2022, Interactive video mapping, Various dimensions.

The results of the study show that the development of contemporary art cannot be separated from the development of science and technology, this can be seen in the works exhibited in Manifesto VIII. The works based on media art in the Manifesto exhibition are one of the strengths of the Manifesto VIII exhibition, as a form of adaptive and responsive a of women artists towards transcultural phenomena.
