Contemporary art exhibition Art Moments Jakarta will showcase various exemplary artwork, photography, video art, sculptures and special installations from more than 35 local and international galleries. 

Art Moments Jakarta founder and curator Leo Silitonga said the exhibition was expected to create a new destination for the international art fair circuit that would offer networking opportunities for local galleries, artists and collectors.

“The art scene in Indonesia is expanding rapidly, and has been receiving growing interest globally. Art Moments Jakarta has been created as a platform to support this interest, as well as to encourage the growth of art appreciation and collection in Indonesia,” Leo said in a statement.
