Thirty-two thousand visitors attended Art Jakarta when it finally made its in-person return from 26 to 28 August. The 2020 and 2021 editions were cancelled due to Covid-19.

'It's not just the artists, but those who display art, like galleries and art management, everyone is excited to work together again,' artist Meliantha Muliawan told Al Jazeera.

'I was personally impressed by Mizuma Gallery, ROH Project, Warin Lab, SAC Gallery, Sullivan+Strumpf, Bale Project, and Srisasanti,' said Natasha Sidharta, Co-Chair of Art Jakarta's Board of Young Collectors, in a statement.

After 12 editions, Art Jakarta has cemented itself as one of the most enduring fairs in the region.

'We have stood together, to face a new situation, and with this year's edition of the fair, we came together, to celebrate again the creativity and genius of our artists,' said Fair Director Tom Tandio in a statement.

'Art Jakarta has always been committed to strengthening and supporting the Indonesian art ecosystem, and we will continue to do so,' he added.

Tubô Cebu Art Fair 2022

Another Southeast Asian Fair will take place in Cebu, the Philippines, in just two weeks.

Founded in 2018, the Tubô Art Fair aims to make art accessible.

The fair consists of both an online auction with a maximum price point of just PHP 50,000 (under US $900) from 11 to 18 September, and an in-person event from 16 to 18 September that will be held at the Ayala Centre in Cebu City.

Artists featuring at the physical fair include Darby Alcoseba, Gigi Ocampo, Kimsoy Yap Jr., Sam Penaso, Geovanni Abing, Adeste Deguilmo, and Melvin Gurheim.

'It's not like your regular art fair,' said a spokesperson for the event. 'Tubô is built to cater to two types of people: the artist and the audience. It is a community-driven fair that has grown thanks to the love and efforts of patrons and volunteers.'

The country's most prominent fair, Art Fair Philippines, held its ninth edition in Manila from 23 March to 1 April 2022. —[O]
