ART|JOG is an annual art fair in Yogyakarta. Started in 2008 as part of the Yogyakarta Arts Festival, ART|JOG was then known as Jogja Art Fair (JAF). In the years after that, JAF had emerged as a stand-alone event, and changed its name to ART|JOG in 2010. ART|JOG is organized by Heri Pemad Arts Management, which has good connections through the arts scene.
In the PROJECT|PRESENTATION programme, curator Grace Samboh features a number of long term, ongoing, artist-initiated art projects. The focus of the programme is to highlight the working methods and process, as well as the artists’ commitment to their own initiatives. The idea of presenting the artist initiative projects aims at seeing how these young artists conceptually explore their creative engagement.
The event is open from 16–29 July 2011 at Taman Budaya Yogyakarta, Indonesia. No admission fee. Please come if you are in town.
