The esteemed art fair will return with more arts and will involve more artists for their exciting programs.
The fifth edition of Art Moments Jakarta (AMJ) will come to the city in November. One of the country’s biggest art fairs will be taking place from 4-6 November 2022 at the Grand Ballroom of Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City and Gandaria City Hall. The fifth edition of Art Moments Jakarta marks the return of the art fair to the bigger venue as a big-scale art event. The first Art Moments Jakarta was held at the same hotel ballroom before continuing its second, third, and fourth editions in the hybrid format (a combination of online and small-scale offline events) due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Art Moments Jakarta is an art fair that supports the development art ecosystem comprising galleries, artists, collectors, and art communities in SouthEast Asia. The fifth edition of Art Moments Jakarta will go under the theme of Continuance which carries the meaning “to continue is to evolve, to not lose the sense of self and circumstances.”
“Every day, with faith and knowledge, we advance toward futures as meaningful as our pasts. Art is our companion. When beautiful, they bring delight, but when disconcerting, they demand introspection. We are determined believers of moments lived. Our journeys are empowered by the kaleidoscopic reflection of ideas,” said Sendy Widjaja, Co-Founder and Fair Director of Art Moments Jakarta, on this year’s theme.
The fifth Art Moments Jakarta will highlight several artists, such as Miwa Komatsu, Andrey Ostashov, Made Wianta, Handrio, and Nyoman Nuarta. Celebrating the uprising of NFT art, Art Moments Jakarta also highlights digital art artists like Arya Mularama – Indonesia, Diela Maharanie – Indonesia, Tommy Chandra – Indonesia, Sarisa Kojima – Thailand, Marion Olmillo – Philippines, Hamlatul Arsy – Brunei.
Art Moments Jakarta in collaboration with ‘Johnnie Walker: Scotch Whiskey Blue Label’ provides a medium for three-dimensional works with the image of Striding Man Johnnie Walker as high as 50 cm which will be responded to by the artists, becoming a unique expression of new works. The next work will be exhibited and sold (through a closed auction system) during the implementation of Art Moments Jakarta 2022. Together with the Women’s International Club (WIC), Art Moments Jakarta will raise funds from the auction proceeds to be donated to the Women’s International Club (WIC) programs.
Art Moments Jakarta will feature a series of exciting public art programs featuring renowned artists. Some of the programs include intriguing talk shows about Art and NFTs, like HANDRIO: Dari Abstrak Geometris Menuju Komposisi Musik, The Future of NFTs, and Sometimes You Don’t Need to Speak to Be Heard: Art and Autism.
