Treasuring the Art of the Republic of Indonesia (referred to as TARI, which is the Indonesian word for dance) is the theme of the exhibit which will showcase artists’ work from around the archipelago, especially in connection to dance.

Indonesian folk dance reflects the rich diversity of the country. Dance in Indonesia represents various forms such as storytelling, communication and celebration. The exhibit aims to promote greater understanding and sustainability of cultural heritage across Indonesia and around the world.

Hadiprana Art Center’s exhibit embraces patriotism and cultural identity by bringing together artists, collectors, and connoisseurs. Hailing from Bali, Yogyakarta and Jakarta (among other cities), a total of 15 artists—including  NOW! Jakarta’s very own Art Director Sudigdo—are among those exhibiting work. Their style reflects modern realism with a special emphasis on progressive aims of modernism on women, contemporary life and society.

Yuli Kodo capture the dance in the sense of  Independence day festivals.

The works on display are available for purchase, with proceeds going to charity organisations.
