The Art Square, an initiative by ART STAGE
As a fair whose mission is to foster the Indonesian art scene, this new section of the Fair offers art institutions, organisations, art groups, young galleries, education centres and non-profit groups a chance to participate in an art fair. For many such organisations, participation in art fairs is generally beyond their means, given the costs involved. However, in line with ART STAGE Jakarta’s mission, the Fair launched the new initiative—The Art Square—that would allow such organisations to take part in the Fair.This is an important step for ART STAGE Jakarta to involve the art ecosystem of Indonesia, making it an exceptional art fair that is for the entire Indonesian art scene, from the established players to the young and up-and-coming ones.
