In an effort to nurture creative minds from a young age, Dia.Lo.Gue Playground shines a spotlight on interactive works of art by established creative figures along with their family members.

Dia.Lo.Gue Playground, an initiative to connect and close the gap between art and people, organised its first exhibition titled “Pong Pong Balong” (referring to a traditional game) in collaboration with art curator Mia Maria, to showcase artworks created between renowned figures from multiple disciplines and their loved ones.

Visitors can look forward to interactive displays such as architect Eko Priharseno and his family’s exhibit, that involves placing cut-out plastic straws, sewing beads and macaroni onto an acrylic mould of Monalisa or a portrait by Vincent Van Gogh, resulting in colourful visuals.

Media installations have also been utilised to inspire families to get to know one another on a deeper level. The founder of Indoestri makerspace, Leonard Theosabrata records a family video engaging his sons Skye and River in honest and intimate conversations, posing questions such as when they last felt happy and why.

Created to encourage a tactile experience for the exhibition-goers, parents and children are free to move, touch and play with the exhibits. Therefore, if you are in search for an activity to engage your family in a fun and valuable way, you’ll be surprised on just what you and your loved ones could get out of this exhibition.


Dia.Lo.Gue Playground runs from February 21st to March 13th. The exhibition opens from Monday to Sunday from 9.30 am to 6 pm.
