ASHTA District 8, a lifestyle destination located in SCBD South Jakarta, turns 3 years old this year. Apart from wanting to provide a different shopping and culinary experience, ASHTA has also provided a lot of inspiration for its loyal visitors, to be more expressive and get to know themselves through various activities such as fine arts, music, wellness and culinary events.
ASHTA District 8 Celebrates 3rd Anniversary - EXPRESSION
In this year's 3rd anniversary series, ASHTA is presenting EXPRESSION activities as its big theme from 9-26 November 2023. "We want to invite all visitors to be able to freely express themselves at ASHTA. Apart from presenting art installations, art exhibitions, markets and entertainment, there will also be anniversary promos from ASHTA tenants that all visitors can enjoy on November 9-12." said Tessa Marlenaska, Center Experience Sr. ASHTA Manager.
Edifice of Expression
In collaboration with renowned Indonesian artist, Naufal Abshar, ASHTA presents a conceptual art installation depicting a tall building depicted on canvas with a reflective surface where visitors are free to express themselves and take photos. Visitors are also invited to imagine and reflect on their journey with ASHTA over the past 3 years.
Apart from art installations, this area also features a wall where visitors can express their creativity by drawing freely. 25hours Hotel The Oddbird also enlivened it by opening culinary stalls ranging from desserts, tacos, to cocktails.
This art exhibition was held from 9-19 November at SPAC8, which was initiated by The Jakarta Illustration & Creative Arts Fair (JICAF). Visitors can enjoy the work of 75 well-known illustrators from Southeast Asia such as Pinot, Ardhira Putra, Izzy (VNGNC), Isha Hening, Liunic and many more. Apart from displaying the best works that can also be purchased, there are lots of other excitement such as conferences and workshops. Entrance tickets can be purchased via loket.com.
Held along the ground floor corridor, the Art Market will give visitors the opportunity to not only enjoy a work, but also to take home beautiful memories with the work as a form of self-expression of our appreciation and love for works of art. Tenants that can be visited include ArtMoments, Funko, Lekat, Pop Mart, Provaliant, and Sovlo.
A line-up of well-known musicians will enliven ASHTA's series of birthday activities this year. We invite all visitors to express themselves and appreciate the musical works of art presented by MOCCA, The Soulful Band, and The Mighties Band. As a form of appreciation for tenants, ASHTA also held a fashion show in collaboration with several fashion tenants. This series of activities can be enjoyed every weekend, during the event period at the Melting Pot on the ground floor.
