Indonesia: Art and retail spaces combine

This year, CGartspace celebrates its 12th anniversary as an art space at Plaza Indonesia.

When owner Christiana Gouw started her gallery, she was the first to see the potential of a mall as a place for the gallery to reach out. Plaza Indonesia was a natural choice, easily accessible for both the general public and the hotel guests at the Grand Hyatt hotel, to which the mall is physically connected.

Initially located in a small lot, she soon moved to a larger and more strategic place in the mall, showcasing ever younger and more talented Indonesian artists, and focusing on contemporary, more accessible works.

Today, CGartspace is a welcoming art space, an asset to a mall that can now add to its list of visitors art lovers, artists and collectors.
