An art space, rather than a gallery in the usual sense of the word, Dia.lo.gue provides room for artists and designers to exhibit their work and interact with the public. A diverse range of art can be viewed including paintings, video, sculpture and paper. This philosophy of inclusion is encapsulated in the name Dia.lo.gue, which in Betawi (or Jakartan) language translates to ‘He/ She.You.Me’. It’s a good venue to spot the creative stars of the future during the rotating exhibitions. A chic coffee shop also provides a perfect meeting point or hangout area. Don’t forget to check out the shop, which stocks out-of-the-box items by local designers.
