Universal Influence: A Primary Concept
Universal Influence departs from an understanding that global or universal culture is born through an accumulation of historical events. In addition, this universality also influences political, economic, social, cultural, defence and security, through to religious regimes. This year the annual event has entered its ninth iteration. The number nine is the highest figure in the basic numerical system. We have high expectations based on the accomplishments and achievements that have been made so far.

In the art scene today contemporary Indonesian art has already attained an important position on an international scale. Art events today impact on social life in general and have become a new power in the world. This year Mandiri ART|JOG wants to celebrate and pay respect to these achievements, and at the same time, be a part of the strengths that contribute to the dynamics of Indonesian art. This year Mandiri ART|JOG|9 will translate the form of this power by constructing a landmark lighthouse at the exhibition site, the Jogja National Museum.
The lighthouse is presented as a symbol of the universal influence of the creators, displaying artistic heights that represent their identity as artists. At the height this self-actualisation, artists, through their best work, will also influence the history that forms and is formed by them.
In this spirit, Mandiri ART|JOG will be held this time at the Jogja National Museum, which was formerly, from 1957, the site of the Indonesian Arts Academy (ASRI). ASRI, according to its inaugural director RJ Katamsi, aspired to teach a new line of artists who were dynamic and creative, and who could truly contribute their souls and great talents to the interests of the struggle for our Archipelago and Nation. In accordance with RJ Katamsi’s statement, for this event Mandiri ART|JOG exhibits the work of artists who have shown consistency in their work and art, and who are involved in the development of art in Indonesia.
