What has been the biggest surprise for you since Art Basel in Hong Kong started?
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.
