Art Stage Singapore, the leading contemporary art fair in the city-state, has announced plans to bring the major art event to neighboring Indonesia with Art Stage Jakarta, the fair’s first venture outside of its home base in the seven years since its launch. Slated to take place on August 5 to 7, the festivities will be held at the Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel, with Lorenzo Rudolf, founder and president of the event, said to be working with Leo Silitonga, owner of Jakarta’s Umahseni gallery, to bring up to 50 galleries to participate. Held just four weeks before the annual Bazaar Art Jakarta, the event will offer art enthusiasts and collectors a chance to take a better look at works by Indonesia’s talented contemporary artists through approximately 2,500 artworks.

“Indonesia  is  the  heartbeat  of  Asia,  injecting  the  region  with  energy,  passion  and  creative  vision for  art,” Rudolf said. “It  is  Southeast  Asia’s leading  center  of  art  production  and  collecting  with  its  community  of  prolific  artists  and  strong  base  of  experienced  collectors.  Art Stage  Jakarta  will  serve  as  the world’s  unique  window  to  the  richness  and  diversity  of  contemporary  Indonesian art,  ensuring that  it will  have  a  strong  regional  and  international  presence.”
