Leonardo Opera Omnia exhibition is held by the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute (Istituto Italiano di Cultura) in Jakarta to mark the 500th anniversary of the death of the Renaissance Master, Leonardo da Vinci. Curated by Prof. Antonio Paolucci, an expert of modern art in Italy, the exhibition features 17 high-definition and true-to-scale reproductions of da Vinci’s masterpieces, which are found in museums throughout the world.
Among his most renowned paintings — all of which were made through a deep understanding of the human body and the mixture of light and shade — are The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa or La Gioconda, the latter of which is considered as an archetypal of the Italian renaissance and arguably the most famous painting in the world.
This exhibition opens today until March 3 at Museum Mandiri 1st floor, Kota, West Jakarta. Opens Tue-Fri 9am-3.30pm, Sat-Sun 9am-6.30pm, Mon closed. Free entry, for more information contact Museum Mandiri at +62 21 692 3131.
If you were in junior high or high school in the mid 2000s, you best believe that you listened to power pop band Hellogoodbye at some point. Helmed by vocalist and founder Forrest Kline, the band will be performing in Jakarta this weekend as part of Emo Night JKT, so you can reminisce about your teenage years (which may include that time you found out that your crush didn’t like you back).
The intimate concert is also a part of Hellogoodbye’s Gimme Some Living Room tour. This will be the band’s third time performing in the capital, as they had previously played here in 2010 and 2013. In this concert, Hellogoodbye will be performing in two sessions, consisting of acoustic and DJ sets. The band says they will donate the proceeds to plant one tree for every ticket sold. Read more about the gig here.
