Art Moments Jakarta has become a medium for interaction and collaboration between art galleries and artists in the last couple of years. It consistently continues to improve the trend for positive and stronger collaboration. This year, Art Moments Jakarta will be held with a new theme: ‘Continuance Wave.’ The Art Moments Jakarta Online 3 will be presented in hybrid form, having offline and online events. The offline event will take place at Art:1 New Museum from 9-12 June 2022, while the online art fair can be accessed through www.artmomentsjakarta.com from 9 June up to 31 August 2022.
Since 2020, Art Moments Jakarta has adapted to the changing world situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic by presenting a hybrid art fair that combines offline and online events. With this hybrid concept, Art Moments Jakarta continues to encourage art galleries and artists to be more active and continue their work to support the growth of Indonesia’s creative industry, especially in the fine arts sector.
Art Moments Jakarta has chosen Continuance Wave as this year’s theme based on its two essential meanings. First, the organization’s role as a sustainable forum to promote and develop fine arts in Indonesia. And secondly, the Continuance Wave theme aligns with the dynamics of the development of art in the world, which is now more innovative and varied.
“Artworks that are now commonly known to the public are no longer limited to conventional formats as paintings on canvas or sculptures. The development of contemporary art generates new modern art creations, including works of photography, video art, objects, installation works, and even now with the digital and virtual assets,” said Sendy Widjaja, Fair Director and Co-Founder of Art Moments Jakarta.
Art Moments Jakarta’s New Breakthrough
Art Moments Jakarta Online 3 will present more than 1,200 artworks from 52 art galleries worldwide. The offline event will kick off on 9 June 2022 and will only open for VIP and invited guests.

Art:1 New Museum, located at Jalan Rajawali Selatan Raya, No. 3, will host art exhibitions and offline events from 9-12 June 2022 in its 4,000 square meters area. The large space will make art lovers conveniently enjoy a variety of artworks from dozens of local and international artists.
There will also be special programs with some local artists that visitors of Art Moments Jakarta Online 3 can join:
- A workshop with Balinese visual artist, I Made Bayak. He will talk about how to turn plastic waste into gorgeous artwork.
- An informative presentation of “Pirous & Post-War Indonesian Art” by Wang Zineng.
- I Made Wianta Converse Moments: I Made Wianta Golden Legacy.
Art has become an integral part of fashion. Highlighting that reason, Art Moments Jakarta will hold a special event, Party at the Museum, during the opening night, mixing art and fashion. Party at the Museum invites guests to participate in the event by donning their best Fashion Street Style during the opening night. This event is a collaboration project of Art Moments Jakarta and P&N Studio which has expertise in fashion, styling, and image consulting.
The committee chose the street style theme as it is commonly known as a medium to express someone’s feelings and a way to be themselves. Guests who attend wearing street style themed attire will automatically join the competition judged by an impressive team consisting of fashion enthusiasts and fashion designers and stand a chance to win a prize for the most unique and the best-dressed title.
Art Moments Jakarta 2022 also presents three prominent artists to look out for. There are Nus Solomon, Kong Andri, and Mira Hoeng. Nus will present his sculptures under the theme Indonesia’s Endemic Animal presented by the Museum of Toys. Kong Andri, an artist who started his career as a graphic designer, will offer Living in The Moment from his Owange Team collection of fun artworks inspired by collectible toys. Meanwhile, Mira Hoeng will display her latest colorful works under Art-1 Museum’s project.
Art Moments Jakarta Online 3 is made possible through the generous support of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy of Indonesia, Bank Central Asia (BCA), The Hermitage, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Jakarta, and all artists and art enthusiasts.
Art Moments Jakarta’s Organization Structure Change
In March 2022, Art Moments Jakarta lost Leo Silitonga, the organization’s Founder and Fair Director. Leo had inspired and encouraged everyone who wants to promote and develop Indonesian fine arts in the national and international market. From now on, Art Moments Jakarta is led by Sendy Widjaja as Co-Founder and Fair Director with the help of his excellent team members as follows:
- Fair Director and Co-Founder: Sendy Widjaja
- Advisor: Helen Koeswoyo Silitonga
- Artistic Director: Khai Hori
- Operations Director: Putri Hidayat
- VIP Relations Director: Deborah Iskandar
- Business Development Director: Ann Delny
- Public Relations Director: Viana Dien Igah
- Curator: Rizki Zaelani
This year’s Art Moments Jakarta Online 3 is part of the journey that the late Leo set out on, to pioneer and develop Art Moments Jakarta to be one of the most important art fairs in Indonesia and a place for artists and art galleries to grow in the region. The journey of Art Moments Jakarta will continue under the leadership of his partner, Sendy Widjaja.
Art Moments Jakarta is one of the most important annual art fairs in the country, held annually since 2019 and initiated by the late Leo Silitonga and Sendy Widjaja. Many leading national and international art galleries consistently participate in Art Moments Jakarta annually to present their valuable artworks in conventional and modern/contemporary art forms.
Art Moments Jakarta consistently plays a good part in introducing and promoting the vital role of developing artists’ creativity and the process of creating works of art to the public, both locally and internationally.
