Jakarta (ANTARA) - Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno supports digital art innovation that could encourage growth of the creative economy, including through a virtual exhibition that could reach a broader audience through the digital space.

"We are very supportive of this creative and innovation platform (virtual exhibition)," Uno noted in his written statement on Monday.

"This is especially in the field of visual communications as well as collaboration and the expression space that would hopefully one day produce creative figures to support the growth of Indonesia's economy," he affirmed

One such example of a virtual exhibition held to display artwork from creative industry actors is "PARTMOTION #1".

The exhibition is a form of collaboration between Paramadina Visual Communication Design Alumni Association (IADKVP) and Paramadina's Visual Communication Design Major and Rupakapala Students Association and can be accessed from iadkvparamadina.com/partmotion.

The virtual exhibition is held until January 21, 2022, so that visual communication design enthusiasts could continue to produce artworks that could potentially drive Indonesia's creative economy sector.

"An artwork should develop and must be unhindered. Exhibitions should not only display artworks but should also elicit public response and become a space for dialogue, so that its benefits could be felt by the nation," Paramadina Unversity's Rector, Didik J. Rachbini, stated.

Visitors at the Virtual Exhibition felt as though they are in a special room as the exhibition has a 360-degree panoramic display.
