Top Picks of Indonesia art events in Jakarta, Solo, and Bali from 21 – 27 January 2019

Arcolabs, a visual art community supporting engagement and growth of arts in Jakarta, invites you to attend The Concept of Self: individual and integrity. This exhibition is part of a continuous effort to explore the idea of self by young artists in Indonesia and Thailand. Following its first exhibition in 2017 in Thailand, this second edition features works that look into the influence of Indonesian and Thai political-cultural shifts in the 1990s on the development of the artistic self and integrity as a member of society. The Concept of Self: individual and integrity is currently showing at Galeri Salihara in Jakarta until the 3rd of February 2019. There will also be a Master Class from 2-4 PM on 26 January 2019.
