Bali has a new space for contemporary art, the Russ Gallery, a place with a well-defined soul rooted in the local cultural and artistic ferment. Since the first exhibitions, the gallery has communicated its willingness to contribute to the regeneration of artists by providing support to young Balinese and Indonesian talents who do not have the space to present their works to art connoisseurs. The proposed aim is to offer emerging artists the opportunity to build their careers and to network with curators, collectors, art lovers, art critics and artists. The scheduled events combine different languages, from fashion to painting passing through the most contemporary installations. The works already exhibited broaden the view on the many pictorial styles of the island which, starting from tradition, arrive at a spiritual abstractionism and a pop in a local key, a development that certainly deserves a visit.
Contemporary photography with an ancient taste with I Gusti Agung Wijaya Utama
The Balinese photographer I Gusti Agung Wijaya Utama S. Sn recreates the atmospheres of the past. His portraits, created with great attention to detail, are not the result of digital technology, but of an ancient process: the Afghan box camera.
Mount Batur and its history in the Geopark Batur Museum
Located South of Mount Batur, the Batur Geopark Museum provides information on the geological, biological and cultural diversity of the surrounding area. It was built after the Batur Caldera region joined UNESCO's global network of Geoparks in September 2012.
Natural pigments & dyes in Balinese traditional crafts
Colors play a vital role in Balinese culture and identity: they are symbolic and their origins are sacred. Traditional Balinese arts and crafts arise from the interconnection between man, the forces of nature and the cosmos, resulting in a divine unity.
From a traditional drink to a true national symbol, arak is so important in Bali that it is used not only on intimate and less official occasions such as moments of joy in the family and in conversations between friends, but also in religious ceremonies.
