Langgeng Art Foundation

The Langgeng Art Foundation (LAF), based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, works in contemporary art in Indonesia, with the specific objective to host a variety of activities pertaining to the making of artwork, art presentations, and the discussions about a range of strategic aspects related to the development and progress in the Indonesian contemporary art practices. Langgeng Art Foundation was established in 2010 through the initiatives of Deddy Irianto, founder and manager of Langgeng Gallery, Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia.

The focus of LAF’s work is on the provision of opportunities and management of resources with the objective of maximising the creative prowess of Indonesian artists. LAF relies on a range of achievements that various stakeholders in the Indonesian art community have had so far, and wishes to subsequently push or pull forward these achievements to reach higher levels.

LAF will focus its interests and programs on the following activities :

  • Art exhibitions presenting Indonesian artwork 
  • Commissioned work/special presentations realising art projects/art works initiated by Indonesian artists
  • Artists’ exchange/residency providing studio for foreign artists 
  • Public Lecture Series inviting observers, critics, academics, and experts who have conducted or are doing research 
  • Internet Database Service providing news updates from or about LAF

To be able to bring those activities about, LAF is open to a range of collaborations, be it with individuals or with institutions, from inside the country or abroad.
