ART|JOG has been dedicating itself to build a network of contemporary visual art at local stage and also at global stage. ART|JOG also commits to present the best works from the invited artists picked by ART|JOG.
Aside from that, ART|JOG also provides a big opportunity for the artist and the public to participate in the event through Open Call Application, and the curator team of ART|JOG will pick the best ones. Open Call Application also become a way to scout the talent of the best young artists. As a space to accommodate the variety of the works and the development of global art market, the artist can send the works in any medium they choose. ART|JOG accepts the variety of works; a painting, a graphic, a photograph, a multidimension installation, a sculpture, a mechanic kinetic until a performance art.
In this program, ART|JOG would work with an (individual or a group of) artist to present the works as the main attraction for public, and as the icon of ART|JOG. The artist that ART|JOG picks has an assignment to present the works that responds to the exhibition building according to the theme of ART|JOG. By picking different theme and artist each year, hopefully ART|JOG can provide a visual presentation that’s always different and suprising.
Young Artist Award is an award for the best young artists participating in ART|JOG, who are 33 years old or less. This program is set up as an appreciation of their artistic endeacor. And also as an attempt to develop the potency and the insight of those young artists in expanding their networks and their career.
Meet The Artist facilitates the public to meet and to talk directly to the artists who involved in ART|JOG. This program encourages an exchange of knowledge and a dialogue between the artist and the public of art.
Through this program, the curator team of ART|JOG would guide the audience throughout the exhibition room. The curator team would also explain the concept and the context of the works displayed there. This program is intended as a way to bring the works closer to their public, and also a means of public education.
As an art event, ART|JOG also provides a space for a presentation of interdisciplinary art. This year, ART|JOG would present something special; a theater performance by Papermoon Puppet Theater (Indonesia) and Polyglot Theatre (Australia) for the 2-8 years old children (and their companions). Inspired by an old tale from Lasem, this theater without words would put the audience at the center of the stage and cast them as the ship passengers in an adventure of sailing the wilderness of the sea, wobbling by the waves, diving and listening to a tale that drowned in the bottom of the sea. A performance involving an unforgettable visual and physical experience.
A contemporary art is no longer about a particular medium. Many artists use interdisciplinary and various mediums to present their works. Therefore, ART|JOG always provides a space, through a program called Special Performance, for such variety of other art forms like music, performing arts and dance. Some artists and groups of artist have been curated to present their best presentations to the public everyday during the event.
ART|JOG invites some artists and creative workers to make and to market their products to a wider public. Therefore, anybody can celebrate ART|JOG.
