Museum MACAN: Critical conversations through art

The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara (Museum MACAN) in West Jakarta opened its doors to the public in November 2017. Founded by the collector and philanthropist Haryanto Adikoesoemo, it has been developed and run as a private foundation operating within the public sphere, and currently houses a collection of around 800 works of Indonesian and International modern and contemporary art that has been built up over 25 years. Though Indonesia has many museums (Jakarta alone has 64 registered museums), Museum MACAN’s purpose‑built facilities providing a vital and necessary museum infrastructure to support the ambitious program of exhibitions sets it apart; as does the focus on public programs promoting outreach and a broader philosophy of cultural exchange.
