Art Jakarta, a highly anticipated international art fair in Indonesia, returns triumphantly in 2023. It is scheduled for November 17-19, 2023, and this year’s edition promises to celebrate art expression in a larger and more state-of-the-art venue – JIExpo Kemayoran, Jakarta.
Art Jakarta 2023 Changing the Venue
Traditionally, the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) Senayan, Central Jakarta, hosted Art Jakarta. However, this year is embracing a fresh location. This year, the event welcomes galleries not only from Indonesia but also from neighboring Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
A Global Showcase
The global allure of Art Jakarta continues to grow as exhibitors from China, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Russia, and Australia eagerly join in. These international participants are enthusiastic about presenting fresh creations by their talented artists. After a successful edition last year, the fair further solidifies its reputation as a significant platform for the exchange of contemporary art in Southeast Asia, strategically positioned in the region’s largest art market.
Art Jakarta 2023 Reaching New Heights with 70 Galleries
Art Jakarta 2023 is poised to make a substantial impact at its new venue. With the participation of 70 national and international galleries, including 14 first-time entrants, it’s a promising new chapter for the fair. Longtime participants like Mizuma Gallery and Srisasanti Gallery express their enthusiasm and expectations.
Fredy Chandra of Mizuma Gallery emphasizes the strong and growing art market in Indonesia and the importance of Art Jakarta as a platform to showcase artists. Benedicto Audi from Srisasanti Gallery highlights the event’s dynamic nature, providing a refreshing gathering for the art community and establishing itself as the best art fair in Indonesia.
Art Jakarta 2023 Showcasing Malaysian Talent
Newcomer Rissim Contemporary, from Malaysia, is excited to contribute to artistic dialogue and introduce Malaysian talent to a global audience. They appreciate Art Jakarta’s focus on representing galleries and works from Southeast Asia.
A Feast for Art Enthusiasts
Art Jakarta promises an engaging experience for collectors, art lovers, and enthusiasts. Visitors can immerse themselves in a diverse range of contemporary works across different mediums, all featured in Art Jakarta’s signature programs.
These programs include Art Jakarta Spot, designed for special presentations of site-specific installations, and Art Jakarta Scene, a segment for artist collectives and non-profits seeking to fund their initiatives.
A Hub for Discourse and Inspiration
Art Jakarta goes beyond showcasing artworks; it aims to spark discourse and inspiration through talks, workshops, and panel discussions. This international art fair is dedicated to giving voice to Asian contemporary art.

A Change of Plans
Earlier this year, Art Jakarta had to adjust its plans. The Indonesian government decided to host the 43rd ASEAN Summit in September at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC), leading to the need for a comprehensive site renovation. This renovation affects all events scheduled at JCC, including Art Jakarta 2023.
As a result, Art Jakarta 2023 relocated to JIExpo Kemayoran, a venue with similar facilities capable of supporting an international art fair. Despite the change in dates and location, Art Jakarta remains committed to presenting Art Jakarta 2023 as the foremost art fair in Southeast Asia.
