I think it’s the re­cep­tion of the show. I ex­pected the Asian side to be en­thralled, but our au­di­ence from the West has caught on so quickly and that’s been re­as­sur­ing. The show is strong in terms of di­ver­sity—you see a cross-cul­tural in­ter­est on both sides. You see Asian col­lec­tors de­vel­op­ing a taste for young artists from Los An­ge­les or New York, and sim­i­larly, West­ern col­lec­tors get­ting in­ter­ested in dif­fer­ent parts of Asia. So I think Art Basel has been like a se­ries of bridges. col­lab­o­rated on. He’s done Paris, New York, worked with Louis Vuit­ton. Hav­ing said that, there’s a gen­er­a­tion born in the late ’70s gain­ing ground in their own way, and also the older gen­er­a­tion, per­haps not as well known. But I think peo­ple are tak­ing in­ter­est in the his­tory of In­done­sia’s art devel­op­ment, be­cause the num­bers are pick­ing up.
