Art Moments Jakarta brought together top collectors to international and local galleries at the Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel for three days.
As Indonesia’s leading contemporary art fair, the opening of the three-day prestigious fair was even made special with the presence of gallerists, VIP art collectors, partners, and media friends.
Leo Silitonga, founder and art curator of Art Moments Jakarta, said, “Art Moments was created as a platform to encourage the growth of art appreciation, and for art collecting, in Indonesia. Our goal is to deliver a world-class art exhibition experience to all visitors, together with the support of our sponsors, participating galleries and artists. We are very pleased to receive such wonderful response and interest from the industry, and we hope everyone will enjoy the exciting programme that we have curated, showcasing an array of exemplary artworks, video art, sculptures, art talks, and special installations from more than 35 galleries.”
From Friday, May 3, 2019 to Sunday, May 5, 2019 Art Moments Jakarta is also filled with several excellent programs, such as the launching of "Romualdo Locatelli, Eternal Green under an Eternal Sun" book by Gianni Orsini, Meet the Artist, Art Talks @ Art Moments, and Art Workshops by Ganara Art Space. These programmes offer more interactive experience that art exhibition per se.
Art Moments is sponsored by Bank Mandiri, Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel, Gandaria City, Pakuwon Group, and supported by partners AGSI (Asosiasi Galeri Seni Indonesia), and over 14 media partners.
