ARTE Indonesia Art Festival 2014 carrying the theme: ‘Regeneration’

14 Mar 2014 - 16 Mar 2014

After its successful inaugural edition last year, ARTE: Indonesia Art Festival will once again turn the Assembly Hall of the Jakarta Convention Center, Jakarta into a massive arena dedicated to ‘Art’ on 14th to 16th March 2014. The three days-arts fiesta will feature an array of art forms including: Visual Art, Performing Art, Culinary Art, Film Festival, Music Performances, and an Art Market.
In its second edition, the ARTE 2014 carries the theme: “Regeneration”. The idea of regeneration is regarded as a rebirth and regrowth,  not only as part of a natural phenomenon but also as  a cultural event that is constructed and designed by a collective arrangement of society. A new generation is born with not only hopes and expectations for a better future, but there are also doubts and concerns over likely failures by successors.
Based on these ideas, the exhibitions intend to explore a variety of perspectives which reveal the current reality of what is occurring in the context of dynamics in change and regeneration. Furthermore, ARTE 2014 attempts to critically observe how each generation questions and analyzes the concept of regeneration which is set in, and influenced by broad social and differing cultural environments.
Last year, the Exhibition featured the works of 33 young talented artists from Jakarta, Bandung, and Yogyakarta. This year, the number is expected to grow, since ARTE 2014 will not only showcase artwork from cities with strong fine art roots, but it has become a media for all artists in Indonesia to display their varied artistic expression.  
As a special treat, this year the festival will feature a number of movies which have participated in some of the world’s prestigious Films Festivals. “The East Most” from Thailand, a documentary entitled “The Missing Pictures” from Cambodia, and “Something on the way” by Teddy Soeriatmadja from Indonesia, are among some of the films that will be presented during the event. There will also be three black and white films from Jeju, Korea, set during World War II, and an animation film from Japan.
As a Festival where the wealth of today’s Indonesian art is presented, ARTE Indonesia Art Festival 2014 is expected to give its contribution to the birth of various collaborative art forms, and the development of Indonesian art in general. Giving opportunities to artists to widely express and interact with art enthusiasts, the event is expected to turn the economic wheel of the art industry in Indonesia to a higher level.
