ARTOTEL ARTSPACE in collaboration with LABX Gallery presents a joint art exhibition as the biggest collaboration in early 2021 with the title “THE MILESTONE.” This art exhibition will be open to the public from March 25 to May 25, 2021, at ARTSPACE ARTOTEL Thamrin – Jakarta and ARTOTEL Yogyakarta.
LABX Galeri is a special place for artists or creators to develop works of art, either through collaborations or other art events. In particular, the art exhibition this time featured 11 talented Indonesian artists whose names were familiar including Aly Waffa, AT Sitompul, Bagus Triono, Bahaudin, Choirudin, David Rivaldo, Imelda Adams, Kadafi GK, Lucia Hartini, MA Roziq, and Valentino Febri.
The meaning of milestone is ‘pal kilometer’ (‘pal mil’), which is commonly encountered along roads when traveling overland out of town. Pal kilometers is a sign indicating the distance, how far we will arrive at the destination city ahead, or, how far we will leave the city behind. However, these Indonesianized milestones become “milestones” or “milestones”, so the works displayed are important or historic works of each artist during their work and career in the art world. Each artist contributes and displays their work in Jakarta and Yogyakarta simultaneously. The exhibition is open to the public by implementing strict health protocols.
Shinta Witoyo Dhanuwardoyo as the founder of LABX said, “LabX Gallery is our initiation in developing the potential of local artists during a pandemic, where we collaborated with ARTOTEL Group to create the exhibition The Milestone. Hopefully, this exhibition can be the first step in realizing our vision and mission to bring the names of local artists onto the international stage “
Windi Salomo, ART Director of ARTOTEL Group said, “Thanks to full support of the Ministry of Tourism & Creative Economy, Mr. Sandiaga Uno, and his staff, we hope that the creative industry, especially Indonesian artists, can return to work after being vacuum for 1 year due to the Covid 19 pandemic that hit Indonesia. In this case, the ARTOTEL Group will continue to be committed to always providing a platform for Indonesian artists to work and innovate through their creative ideas.
