Mengusung tema “Enlightenment” yang berarti pencerahan, Art Jog 2018 bakal berlangsung hingga 4 Juni 2018 mendatang.

Selain Indonesia, seniman dari beberapa negara seperti Malaysia, Filipina, Australia, China, Amerika Serikat (AS) dan Jerman akan unjuk gigi yang tentunya sangat berpengalaman dengan menyuguhkan karya seni yang inspiratif.

Di samping gelaran pameran seni, Art Jog juga bakal menghelat Meet The Artist, yakni memfasilitasi publik untuk dapat bertemu dan berbincang langsung dengan seniman yang terlibat dalam Art Jog. Program ini memungkinkan terjadinya pertukaran pengetahuan dan dialog antara seniman dan publik seni. Pengunjung juga akan dimanjakan dengan berbagai program lainnya meliputi Curatorial Tour, di mana pengunjung akan diajak mengelilingi ruang pamer dengan dipandu oleh tim kurator.

Kemudian ada pula Special Performance yang menghadirkan persinggungan beragam bentuk seni melalui pertunjukan. Di sini Art Jog akan menggandeng seniman (kelompok seni) yang telah memiliki pengalaman dan reputasi yang baik dalam bidangnya untuk ikut serta merayakan Art Jog.

Art Jog pun memberi ruang bagi keberagaman bentuk seni lainnya seperti seni musik, seni pertunjukan juga seni tari dalam tajuk Daily Performance. Sejumlah seniman dan kelompok seni telah dikurasi untuk menampilkan persembahan terbaik mereka setiap hari ke hadapan publik.
