Join us for Dekat-Dekat Jauh (So Close Yet So Far), a conversation series about Indonesia-Australia relations in visual arts, presented in collaboration between Santy Saptari Art Consulting and Asialink Arts. Through the lens of visual arts the program aims to ask, ‘what can the arts do to build understanding and trust between nations?’ and, ‘can greater awareness and familiarity of the art produced in a place promote a deeper connection?’.

The third session Private Platforms and The Art Market: Collecting, Connecting and Commissioning explores the critical role of private collectors and organisations in promoting exchange and collaboration between Indonesia and Australia. The discussion will unpack motivations, incentives and experiences of operating in commercial contexts including the value of relationships with artists and differences between keeping collections private and making them public.
