Kedai Kebun Forum


This fun, bohemian space is a key haunt for Yogya's arts community. The gallery curates mixed-media exhibitions and hosts pop-up shops, film screenings and DJs. The upstairs restaurant caters well for vegans and vegetarians and acts as a hub of postmodern dialogue. A copy of the Yogya Art Map, produced by the team at Kedai Kebun, is a must-have for art lovers.
