EYES WIDE OPEN

Lovers of con­tem­po­rary art in In­done­sia can take their pick this month be­tween the Jakarta Biennale and Biennale Jogja – or even take in both. Jakarta Biennale will take place mainly at the sprawl­ing cre­ative space known as Gu­dang Sari­nah Eko­sis­tem in south Jakarta, and the event will wel­come some 50 artists work­ing in a range of medi­ums. How­ever, if a smaller event in a more com­pact city is closer to your style, Biennale Jogja in cen­tral Java also of­fers a range of In­done­sian vis­ual artists, mu­si­cians, writ­ers, speak­ers and com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties at the Jogja Na­tional Mu­seum. The past three edi­tions of the event have fo­cused on con­nect­ing Yo­gyakarta with a coun­try that, like In­done­sia, also sits on the equa­tor. This year it's the turn of Brazil.

WHERE AND WHEN? JAKARTA, 4 NOVEM­BER TO 11 DE­CEM­BER; YO­GYAKARTA, 2 NOVEM­BER
