FOUNDED in 2019, ArtMoments is an established art fair in Indonesia, initiated and organized by prominent art stakeholders, the late Leo Silitonga and Sendy Widjaja.

ArtMoments has made a remarkable impact on the art industry. In 2020, amidst the challenges of the pandemic, the art fair successfully hosted an online art fair, providing vital support to galleries during those trying times.

According to Sendy Widjaja, Co-Founder & Fair Director of ArtMoments Jakarta at the press conference in Jakarta (5/16) said after a series of progressive journeys, ArtMoments is now expanding its horizons to Bali, Indonesia’s premier tourist destination. ArtMoments Bali will debut on 23 June for VIP and invitation-only guests from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.

“Later, on 24 and 25 June 2023, all art lovers and the public are welcome to visit ArtMoments Bali, free of charge, from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. The first-ever hotel room art fair in Indonesia will take place at Jimbaran Convention Center at InterContinental Bali Resort, Jimbaran,” he said.

Sendy Widjaja explained that we are excited to finally bring the notable ArtMoments to Bali. Bali has been known internationally as an art and cultural destination and is the perfect venue for ArtMoments new milestone. We hope this art fair can amplify Bali not only for leisure, but also to put Bali on the map as an art destination in the world,” said Sendy Widjaja, Co-Founder & Fair Director of ArtMoments Jakarta.

Sendy added, together with Bank Central Asia (BCA), they hope that ArtMoments Bali can be the platform for collectors to acquire artworks. I would like to extend my appreciation for their continuous support to ArtMoments by providing special deals tailor-made for us.

ArtMoments has been working together with Bank Central Asia (BCA) since 2021 to bring a smooth art-buying experience during the event. Like at ArtMoments Jakarta, art lovers and art collectors coming to ArtMoments Bali at InterContinental Bali Resort, Jimbaran can use the Cicilan BCA 0% up to 24 Months for artworks purchases using BCA credit cards.

Under the artistic direction of Rizki Zaelani, ArtMoments Bali will embrace the theme “Infinite Boundaries.” This theme highlights the ever-evolving nature of contemporary fine art, reflecting the changing lives and societal dynamics of the present era. Artists participating in the event will embrace the challenge of creating artworks that mirror the complexities and triumphs of modern life.

One of the interactive and unique workshops is “Plasticology” from I Made Bayak. The event will take place at the InterContinental Bali Resort and its Jimbaran Convention Centre and will feature art galleries from Southeast Asia and beyond.

The collections shown by the participating artists and art galleries during the art fair will focus on the development of value creation, usually highlighting various issues, such as the celebration of the sustainability of the universe, respect for the value and existence of living ecosystems, interpretation of life cycle experiences (recycled), and threats to life.

“ArtMoments Bali will encourage the participating galleries to explore issues related to the creation of unlimited and always sustainable works, just like human life, technology, and science continue to develop dynamically,” he concluded. []
