About the Museum

The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara (Museum MACAN) is an art museum in Jakarta. It is the first institution of its kind in Indonesia, providing public access to a significant and growing collection of modern and contemporary art from Indonesia and around the world. The Museum has an active program of exhibitions and events in a 4,000 square meter facility including onsite education and conservation spaces.

Mission

Dedicated to supporting interdisciplinary education and cultural exchange, the institution offers a wide variety of public programs, and a dynamic exhibition program. As part of its mission, the Museum will be an important platform for local and international artists to present their work to a global audience, and will commission new works by artists that broaden perspectives on contemporary art in and beyond Indonesia. Museum MACAN will also offer professional development opportunities for artists, curators, and other arts-focused young professionals to help build upon the energy of Indonesia's vibrant arts ecology.
