art jog 2017 festival | changing perspective
Annual art summit Art Jog returns with Changing Perspective. Here, the most preeminent Indonesian artists showcase at the Jogja National Museum, an event that's become a circled calendar event on the international art map.
May 20 - June 29, 2017
Jogja National Museum, Yogyakarta
Back in its eighth year, Art Jog opened at the Jogja National Museum May 20th. Likely the foremost art festival of the archipelago, artists from across Indonesia are featured utilizing the range of artistic mediums - with few international artists for good measure. The festival is held in the Central Java city of Yogyakarta (Jogja, locals say) in no small coincidence: arguably the cultural and artistic heart of Indonesia is located here, born of rich traditions and continued by thriving art schools and a relatively relaxed urban environment. These ingredients make for an astoundingly vibrant artistic landscape, from striking visual art to experimental harsh noise music.
Luckily for you, Art Jog continues until June 19, with daily and weekly programs still on the go. For those in the know, Art Jog is already on their calendar. Add it to yours too.
