Marvel Comics Artists: workshop and discussion at @america

While Marvel Comics has been around for 80 years, their work has shaped pop culture and given birth to some of the most iconic and complex characters of all time. Learn how comic book artists bring their dreams to life and inspire the superhero in all of us, in a workshop and talkshow by Ario Anindito, comic artist for Marvel Comics (Hulkverines, Shang-Chi) and DC Comics, and Adhitya Zulkarnaen, visual artist and the winner of Spider-Man: Far From Home fan poster contest.
Saturday, Oct 12 at @America Pacific Place; workshop at 3pm-5pm and talkshow at 6.30-8.30pm. Free entry, tickets are available here.
Nurrachmat “Mas Ito” Widyasena is a Bandung-based artist who explores the theme of retro-futurism, working in the mediums of printmaking, installations, video and drawing. His main idea is about Space Age, the zeitgeist of all mankind of the world during the 1940s-1980s, when people dreamed and predicted how humans would live in outer space and how space travel would be common. The exhibition shows Ito’s interest in sci-fi & pop culture related to time machines and futuristic technology, which leads to a strong interrelation of how the human imagination of the future has not changed much until today.
This exhibition is currently running until October 27 at RUCI Art Space, South Jakarta, from 11am-7pm. Free entry.

The Color Run is a five-kilometer, untimed race — and at each kilometer mark, the Color Runners are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder. Participants wear white at the starting line and finish the race plastered in color. Once the race is over, the fun continues at the Finish Festival, a larger-than-life party equipped with music, dancing, photo ops, activity booths, vendors, and more massive color throws. With no winners or official times, The Color Run caters to everyone — from newbies to seasoned runners.

Sunday, Oct 13 at Gelora Bung Karno area, Senayan, Central Jakarta, from 6am. Registration opens until Friday, Oct 11, with fees for adult start from IDR340,000/person.
