With the intertwining global art markets today, art collectors are increasingly under the spotlight. Art Stage Jakarta’s collectors' show titled Expose was an exhibition featuring works by leading artists from Indonesia, the region and the world on loan from some of Indonesia's most prominent private art collections. Curated by Enin Supriyanto, the exhibition was a hommage to the spirit of art collecting which was first ignited by President Sukarno and continues today with the new generation of collectors. It underscored the importance of the role of art collectors in Indonesia and how they have contributed to the growth of the visual art scene in the country.
Expose featured artworks from the collections of Alex Tedja, Deddy Kusuma, Dr. Melani Setiawan, Rudy Akili, Tom Tandio and Wiyu Wahono. They represented at least two generations of art collectors in Indonesia, displaying the different personal collecting preferences through various artworks. The exhibition included paintings, sculptures, installation, photography as well as works that incorporate the most current state of digital technology and bio-electronic elements.
