Jakarta has a bustling art centers scattered all over the city. From privately owned galleries, art shops, or even to the museum scale, of modern and contemporary artworks created by the national and international maestros. It is fun to hunt down art spaces and objects in Jakarta.
Having hosted the 18th Asian Games, Jakarta's stance in the world has increased dramatically since it is now known that it can host international events with supporting infrastructure by international standards.
