Exhibiting leading artists from South East Asia and the Pacific since 2011 both in the Berlin Gallery and its Singapore branch, ARNDT has developed a strong profile in Asia.
Having hosted monographic presentations and curated group exhibitions featuring major art from Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Cambodia and publishing books on the subject, such as „SIP! Indonesian Art Today“, Matthias Arndt is an expert authority in the field of contemporary Southeast-Asian art. Arndt is also a member of the Asia Pacific Acquisition Committee of the TATE and a member of The Order of Arts and Letters of France.
Celebrating its 20th Anniversary this fall and having worked and exhibited in France and Paris many times over the years, ARNDT chose to do a one day Pop-Up-Exhibition of its recent programme in Paris, focussing on Indonesia and the Philippines as being the most prolific and booming new artlandscapes within Asia. In the French-American Association, right across Grand Palais hosting FIAC, ARNDT is exhibiting the work of the artists ARIN DWIHARTANTO SUNARYO (Indonesia), EKO NUGROHO (Indonesia), JIGGER CRUZ (Philippines), GERALDINE JAVIER (Philippines), RODEL TAPAYA (Philippines) and MIT JAI INN (Thailand).
Many of the artists, though highly profiled all over Asia and having featured in major international art exhibitions (Arin Dwihartanto being part of the „UBS Global Map Initiative“ at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, 2013) have their first appearance in Paris. The internationally most known artist of the selection, Eko Nugroho, from Yogjakarta/Indonesia, , showed in Paris at the Musée d´Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, as part of SAM Projects in 2012. Mostly new work, produced solely for Paris, will be shown in the Pop-up.
ARNDT’s exhibition is supported by ASIANOW - a new artfair specialised on Asian Contemporary Art, launching in 2015 in Paris.
