Ruci Art Space

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight - T: An­ton Is­mael B: An­ton Is­mael

Stay­ing true to its nom de plume, Ruci (from San­skrit mean­ing “source of light, taste or plea­sure”) wants to be­come the beacon of light for In­done­sia’s art and cul­ture, to cul­ti­vate fur­ther aware­ness of art amongst youth. Their gallery’s space al­most seems for­tu­itous to its name: a for­mer restau­rant turned into a 450m2 area with a main ex­hi­bi­tion area that has two video/in­stal­la­tion rooms. Ruci Art Space has a spe­cific an­nual pro­gram: they will work with four artists a year for a one-month solo show, and along the way cre­at­ing a plat­form be­tween artists and the pub­lic. In the last two years they have held six ex­hi­bi­tions, in­clud­ing Hole in the Wall, a group show of Jakarta- and Ban­dung-based artists with creative brands; and Y Col­lect that dis­plays 20 art­works from pri­vate col­lec­tions. Cur­rently they are rep­re­sent­ing painter Glenda Lee Su­tardy, pixel artist Oom­leo, and two highly re­garded pho­tog­ra­phers: Kinez Riza and An­ton Is­mael.
