Art Moments Jakarta is a premium art fair that was postponed last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, has returned to take visitors and collectors to travel through time.
The exhibition’s theme, “Yesterday since tomorrow is today, yesterday since tomorrow is us.”
According to Art Moments Jakarta chief operating officer Sendy Widjaja, this theme illustrates a sense of time travel.
“Our artistic director Khai Hori first came up with the concept. If we look at human civilizations, art is closely tied to humankind, starting from rituals and worship to how we live. When we admire an artwork, it takes us to the past, present, and the future,” Sendy told an online conference.
Visitors and collectors will embark on a “time machine” to be exposed to both traditional and contemporary arts. Visitors can also admire new mediums such as digital art, non-fungible tokens, textile, and sound art.
About 65 galleries from Indonesia and overseas are participating in the exhibition.
According to Sendy, Art Moments Jakarta is the first art fair in Indonesia to be held personally and online.
The offline event will take place in three renowned museums in the capital :
- Museum Jakarta (May 20-22),
- D Gallerie (June 1-3),
- CAN’s Gallery (June 18-20).
The online art fair will be accessible via Art Moments Jakarta’s official website.
