What started out as personal collection of works from Yogyakarta artists, built across the span of several years, formed the bulk of Artemis Art’s collection of works when we first began operations in 2011. Since then, much has changed. In early 2013 we moved to a different location within Publika, a place we called home until early 2021 when we made the decision to no longer operate a physical gallery for the time being.
In November 2021 Artemis Art turned 10, our decade anniversary coming at a time the world was going through great turmoil with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Just as how the art world has had to make tremendous adjustments to how it operates, so has Artemis Art. Our activities are currently focused on our online presence, as well as exhibiting our artists through collaborations with galleries outside of Malaysia, and participating in selected art fairs when and where we are able to.
As a gallery, our primary focus is on promoting young and emerging artists from Southeast Asia, whose diverse art-making modes and practices mirror the sheer diversity in the region. Artemis Art is a firm believer in collaborations, and for the past several years has actively exhibited in neighboring countries through various collaborative models, thus far in China, Indonesia, Philippines, and Taiwan.
