Top Picks of Indonesia art events in Yogyakarta, Bandung, Jakarta and Bali from 10 – 16 September 2018

It’s a brand new week, art lovers. Perhaps a dance performance on this Monday night can help to start your week right! Pendhapa Art Space in Yogyakarta presents The Garden of the Sun – a choreographic collaboration between Japan’s Dinyos Dance Company and Indonesia’s Bimo Dance Theatre. This performance will take place at Taman Budaya Yogyakarta on Monday, 10 September 2018 at 7:30 PM. For more information, visit their Instagram page here.

Over in Bandung, come to the opening of Pameran Patungan Patung Yuk! on Friday, 14 September 2018. Pameran Patungan Patung Yuk! is an exhibition that explores ideas related to 3-dimensional arts in the city of Bandung. 8 artists, designers, researchers, and other members of the art communities come together to present these ideas in the form of sketches, building models, as well as conceptual texts. The exhibition opening will take place from 3PM to 6 PM at Rumah Radi in Bandung. The exhibition closes on the 21st of September 2018. There will be a discussion on the topic of Public Sculptures on the 20th of September. For more information, visit Area Olah Karya’s instagram account here.

Jakarta’s alternative cinema, Kineforum, is having a lighter program titled Cipta Ceria that runs from now until the 16th of September. Cipta Ceria celebrates film, music, and works that share about different creative processes because Kineforum believes that human energy is best channeled towards creativity instead of being involved in unproductive conversations on the social media. Check out their Cipta Ceria line up here and let these films remind you of your own creativity.

If you’re a music lover and looking for a different sound, come to this week’s edition of Goethe Institut’s Alur Bunyi. Alur Bunyi is Goethe Institut’s presentation and discussion on contemporary positions of experimental music from Indonesia and Germany. A Fine Tuning Creation (AFTC) presents their work this week on Thursday, 13 September 2018 at 8 PM at the Goethehaus. Presentation is Free for Public. For more information, click here.
