Esok: Membangun Sejarah Bersama 21 Nov 2021 - 21 Jan 2022 In the midst of the current pandemic, offline exhibitions are becoming very rare and make art connoisseurs yearn to appreciate the exhibition in person. The atmosphere and wind at the exhibition site are still not present in virtual exhibitions. Being able to directly visit the 2021 Jakarta Biennale was a valuable experience for me.  So what is the Jakarta Biennale? From the archives : History of Jakarta Biennale The forerunner to the Jakarta Biennale was the Great Indonesian Painting Exhibition organised by the Jakarta Arts Council for the first time in 1968 at Taman Ismail Marzuki, Jakarta. After 1974, the Great Indonesian Painting Exhibition took the biennial format, held every two years. Venues : 1. National Awakening Museum (Stovia) 2. National Museum of Indonesia 3. Taman Menteng 4.

  Virtual Exhibition   Tio Tjay was born in Jakarta in 1946. In 1957, he joined in to a community of teen painter; Organisasi Seni Lukis Yin Hua under the lead of Lee Man Fong. In 1967, he traveled and stayed in Sao Paolo and Amazon Brazil, where he kept on painting while attending one exhibition to another. In Brazil, he created a visual formula that assimilates the elements of Indonesia, Amazon, Brazil and China, which is reflected in his unique painting style. He went on the journey for years before going back to Jakarta and lived as a professional artist.   Tio Tjay’s unique pieces were exhibited in various countries from Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Italy, Brazil to Paraguay. Locally the pieces are appreciated in exhibitions from various cities as well, from Jakarta, Bandung, Jogjakarta, Surabaya, and Balikpapan. Tio Tjay has participated in auction houses such as Christie’s, Glerum, Sotheby’s, Larasati, Borobudur, Masterpieces and others.   8 Arwana (2020) 110 x

  Virtual Exhibition   What do you think of sculpture? What type of sculpture do you like? What do you think when someone talks about sculpture? There is one name that always related to sculpture for me, Nyoman Nuarta. His artworks that are Ku Yakin Sampai Disana Statue at Museum Nasional Indonesia, Arjuna Wijaya Statue in Thamrin Jakarta main road moreover his sculpture park in Bandung which is NuArt Sculpture Park also really impressed me. Besides Nyoman Nuarta, I have also personally enjoyed one of the works of artist Yani Maryani Sastranegara at the exhibition of 100 Tahun Rayuan Basoeki Abdullah.  Apart from the artworks of Nyoman Nuarta and Yani Maryani Sastranegara, the artworks of other artists are also very interesting to be appreciated.   Wondering about the virtual sculpture exhibition at Andi's Gallery? Let's take a look at some of the collections on the screen. Nyoman Nuarta Victory Dance (2021)   Yani Maryani Sastranegara Free of Soul (2008

  Virtual Exhibition   Have you been able to visit art exhibitions recently? Due to the uncertain condition of the pandemic, there are still many museums and galleries that are closed for an undetermined time. Do you miss visiting art exhibitions? At first the virtual exhibition was not very interesting, but this virtual exhibition exceeded my expectations.   According to Adi Gunawan, the artworks that he exhibits at Andi's Gallery represent the ideal woman according to his version with curly hair and a fat body. I strongly agree with Adi Gunawan's idea because there are no certain standards that every woman must fulfil to be considered to an ideal woman.   What kind of virtual exhibition does Adi Gunawan present at Andi's Gallery?     Want to take a closer look at the collection on display?   The Man from Tang 2020   Sound of Music 2007   Mother and Child 2011   Istri Manja 2007   Dream 2011   Although the l
