Director General of Culture of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology, Hilmar Farid, Ph.D., said, “I appreciate Best of Indonesia’s initiative to introduce Indonesian culture while encouraging its marketing and promotion to the French public, especially Europe in general, in an elegant way in a respectable venue such as the Carrousel du Louvre.”
“This is in line with the government’s efforts to build Indonesia’s image as a country rich in culture. The world needs to know more about Indonesia’s natural and cultural wealth and creativity, and I think Edward Hutabarat’s work is very representative of that mission.”
“I am proud, and very happy to be invited by the Carrousel du Louvre to exhibit my work in such a historic place in Paris,” said Edward Hutabarat. In 2022, this designer held an exhibition at Borobudur Temple entitled “Kabakil”, which made a positive impression on Carrousel du Louvre officials and eventually triggered an invitation for Edo Hutabarat to exhibit his work at this year’s Carrousel du Louvre exhibition.
Luthfi Hasan, Representative for Best of Indonesia in Jakarta stated: “This exhibition is intended to promote and increase the visibility of Indonesian brands and talents in the international community, which have the potential to penetrate the French and European markets”.
