The Indonesian Visual Art Archive (IVAA) is a nonprofit organization based in Yogyakarta and established in 1997, initially under the name of Yayasan Seni Cemeti (until April 2007). IVAA functions as a think tank or a creative laboratory to support the development of visual art and contemporary culture in both practice and discourse.
Our collection includes photographs and audio-video recordings of artists at work, talks, and artwork presentations, as well as books, exhibition catalogues, and audio-visual artworks. Most of the collection can be accessed through the library, which is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please consult our archivists for particular materials. Appointments can be arranged at: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Since mid-2008, we have been converting most of the documents from analogue to digital through a digital archiving system. Previews of digitalized materials are accessible at ivaa-online.org/archive.
