Contemporary art exhibition Art Moments Jakarta will be held from May 3 to 5 at Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel in South Jakarta.
For the inaugural event, the art fair is set to host various programs, such as Art Talks, Art Workshops by Ganara Art Space and free guided tours for students.
The Art Talks program will be held on May 4 and 5, with the first session scheduled to run on May 4 from 1 to 5 p.m. The program will cover a variety of topics, including street arts, re-calibrating art circuits, Islamic arts and online art-market revolutions.
The second session is slated for May 5 at 11 a.m., and it will focus on hybrid cultural products that can be traced through traditional Indonesian aesthetic values and Islamic values in the art works.
Art Moments Jakarta will also open its doors to young art enthusiasts. During the Art Workshop by Ganara Art Space, children aged 3 and above as well as adults will be able to explore pottery arts, printing and painting inspired by artworks made by renowned artists such as Yayoi Kusama, KAWS, MR., Robert Indiana and Kim Seok.
The program will run from May 1 to 5 and will be divided into two categories, all-day open-ended workshops and scheduled workshops.
Moreover, students who are interested in visiting the event as an education experience are welcomed to join free guided tours. Those who come in groups of a minimum of 15 students are also entitled to complimentary tickets.
