Indonesia's first international modern art museum opening in Jakarta in 2017

Indonesia’s first major museum dedicated to international modern and contemporary art will open its doors in Jakarta in 2017.

The brainchild of Indonesian philanthropist and collector Haryanto Adikoesoemo, the multi-million dollar Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara (MACAN) is currently under construction.

The private institution will house Adikoesoemo’s personal collection built over a quarter-of-a-century, which is being curated by Thomas J. Berghuis – formerly curator of Chinese art at New York’s Guggenheim. The collection includes art from across the world, with around 40 per cent from Indonesia, 35 per cent from the US and Western Europe and 25 per cent from wider Asia.

The 43,000sq ft (4,000sq m) museum will be located in the west of the Indonesian capital, occupying one floor of a larger development project which includes offices, apartments, a hotel and retail. Revenue generated from other parts of the development will go towards operation of the museum, according to Adikoesoemo. Experience designers from MET Studio have been appointed to the project, with the firm creating a narrative to frame the 800 works of modern and contemporary art.

Indonesian artists whose works feature include Raden Saleh, S. Sudjojono, Affandi, Heri Dono and FX Harsono. Pieces by Robert Rauschenberg, Anish Kapoor, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons and Ed Ruscha are also included in the collection.
