Tuesday, September 3, 2019
Entering the new decade with the 11th edition of the fair, the annual contemporary art fair Art Jakarta was officially held again for three days from August 30th to September 1st, 2019.
No longer being held at Pacific Place Mall, 2019 Art Jakarta is now expected to be more crowded than the previous years and has changed its venue for the first time to be at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC).
Art Jakarta introduces its new identity with a new fresh logo appearance. The image of the art market that was built in this art fair makes Jakarta one of the centers of Asian contemporary art. This event also has strengthened Indonesia’s position as one of the important pillars in the development of art in Asia.
In the 11th year, this time Art Jakarta took 70 galleries from inside and outside the country. A total of eight programs were presented during the three days of the exhibition. The galleries include Art Jakarta Galleries, Art Jakarta Spot, Art Jakarta X, Art Jakarta Play, Art Jakarta Scene, Art Jakarta Charity, Art Talk, and Art unlimited which all are the results of a collaboration with Bekraf.
Every year, Art Jakarta Charity is always held through an auction of artworks. A total of 10 artists’ works were actioned off to be donated to Mitra Museum Jakarta and Happy Hearts Indonesia. This year, Art Jakarta also started being unique with the new presence of Art Jakarta Scene that was designed to display more functional artworks in the form of merchandise like t-shirts, tote bags, toys, to personal arts.
Art Jakarta Spot enabled visitors to marvel at seven large artworks in certain spots. Visitors were also able to gain more knowledge about particular parts of the art scene through Art Jakarta Talk.
