Indonesia Expat - - Announcements -

The ar­rival of Art Stage in Jakarta for the second time has at­tracted a tremen­dous amount of vis­i­tors and col­lec­tors, prov­ing that In­done­sia and its cap­i­tal city is ready to be­come an in­ter­na­tional art des­ti­na­tion. The in­ter­na­tional art fair, which took place from Au­gust 9 – 13, brought in as many as 52,240 guests, which in­cluded both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional artists, col­lec­tors, cre­ative pro­fes­sion­als and the pub­lic. Art Stage took place at the Sher­a­ton Grand Jakarta Gan­daria City. Founder and Pres­i­dent of Art Stage, Lorenzo Ru­dolf, re­vealed that the art fair should help bring In­done­sia’s art scene to the in­ter­na­tional stage.

“The second edition of Art Stage Jakarta has been a huge suc­cess thanks to the great co­op­er­a­tion and part­ner­ship that we have with the In­done­sian art scene. This re­la­tion­ship is based on a strong and un­shake­able trust that has grown be­tween the Fair and the In­done­sian art scene. Art Stage Jakarta has suc­cess­fully built a bridge be­tween In­done­sia and the in­ter­na­tional art world which has helped to ce­ment In­done­sia’s global rep­u­ta­tion and po­si­tion as the most ac­tive and big­gest art scene in South­east Asia,” Ru­dolf said in a press state­ment.

Art Stage was joined by a to­tal of 60 gal­leries, 24 of which were lo­cal and the rest in­ter­na­tional. Aside from vis­it­ing these gal­leries, guests witnessed a num­ber of in­ter­ac­tive art projects and an ex­tra ex­hi­bi­tion called the Art Square, which show­cased 27 se­lect exhibitors – in­clud­ing art in­sti­tu­tions, non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions or ed­u­ca­tion cen­tres – who earned the chance to show­case their works at the Gan­daria City Mall.
