Art Exhibition | X Visit Bali Year X #3
Exhibition runs from 19 October–19 November, with the launch at 19:00 on 19 October.

Since 2003, Slinat (short for “silly in art”) has captured various local social issues through his highly distinctive art. One of his most iconic images is a Balinese girl whose face is obscured by a gas mask. When we view old images of Bali we romanticize its beauty. But when we look now, all is different.

Exhibition runs from 19 October–19 November, with the launch at 19:00 on 19 October.

Music in the Library: Zio, solo set
Saturday, 22 June at 7 pm | Free Event

Elegant. This is the image inherent in Michael Brozio Orah or Zio, a Balinese musician who plays bass in Dialog Dini Hari. A multi-instrumentalist, @ziomusic_id is also a skilled singer-songwriter, and last year he released his first solo album, See the Sun. It contains eight slick songs that are far from the nuances of the folk/blues of Dialog Dini Hari.

Kini stigma anak muda terhadap pementasan Calonarang kian tidak terkontrol. Banyak penikmat seni hanya penasaran akan fenomena-fenomena mistis yang terjadi saat pementasan Calonarang. Padahal banyak makna-makna dari kisah Calonarang yang belum kita pahami lebih dalam.

Dalam rangka pembukaan pameran kali ini kami mengajak para penikmat seni untuk bergabung dalam obrolan tentang makna kisah Calonarang dalam sebuah film dokumenter dengan narasumber pada film yaitu Wayan Sukra (seniman), Ki Guru Gede Budha Gautama (sastrawan) dan Sukanda Arimbawa.

Film dokumenter kali ini berusaha memberikan informasi akan filosofi dan juga pesan moral dari kisah Calonarang. Bagi kami, banyak pesan yang ingin disampaikan oleh leluhur kita untuk berkehidupan secara luas.

BUANA-Eflyer copy

When we talk about Buana (Universe), we’re not only talking about its landscape—the depiction of its beautiful mountains, the sea, rice paddies or beaches. Conversations about Buana cannot be set apart from the entities in it: nature, mankind and the relation between both of them.

With this in mind, Asosiasi Kreatif Ubud will be holding an exhibition to engage with this idea. 10 artists, of diverse backgrounds, have attempted to reinterpret Buana from their own perspective. This exhibition will feature 10 works that reinterpret nature, mankind and the relation between both of them.

Meet the artists on our exhibition opening night at Littletalks Ubud, and get to know each member of @aku_id Asosiasi Kreatif Ubud (Ubud Creative Association). Buana Art Exhibition will be open for public for 1 week, come and support local artists!

Bicara tentang Buana, tidak melulu bicara tentang pemandangan dengan keindahan gunung atau laut, hamparan sawah atau bentangan pantai. Obrolan-obrolan tentang Buana tidak akan bisa lepas dari entitas-entitas yang ada di dalamnya: alam, manusia dan relasi antara keduanya.
Asosiasi Kreatif Ubud kembali mengadakan pameran bersama untuk merespon hal tersebut. 10 ilustrator, dengan latar belakang yang beda-beda, memaknai kembali Buana melalui perspektifnya masing-masing. Pameran ini akan menampilkan 10 karya hasil penggambaran ulang alam, manusia dan relasi keduanya.

Mari hadir di malam pembukaan Buana Art Exhibition di Littletalks Ubud dan cari tahu mengenai Asosiasi Kreatif Ubud. Pameran akan berlangsung selama 1 minggu, ayo datang dan dukung seniman seniman lokal!

Please accept our invitation to special preview screening & discussion with Marko Randelovic. Marko is a nomadic documentary filmmaker and photojournalist capturing inspiring stories of humanity from around the world.

About the films:
Real Balinese healers continue to use the ancient knowledge of their ancestors to treat people without expecting anything in return.

The master woodcarvers of Bali are striving to keep their unique craft alive for the next generation. I Made Ada is a master wood carver from the renowned woodcarving village Pakudui near Tegalalang, Ubud.

Farmers of Bali’s famous rice fields are taking a stand against the rampant growth of the tourism industry. Bali’s tourism industry continues to break records with increasing numbers of people arriving on the shores of this mystical Hindu island each year.

The begging women of Bali’s streets are being empowered to change their lives.
These women are usually found on the streets of Bali’s tourism hotspots, asking for money whilst sleeping on the streets. Children often accompany them and help collect money from both locals and often wealthier tourists.

Music in the Library
Exclusive with NANDA
Starts 7:30 pm

Born and raised in Jakarta, Prananda Kusuma Putra or better known as Nanda is a musician, singer and song writer. Jamming with the metropolitan’s street buskers, he gained plenty of insight and inspiration to voice the unheard — their struggles, yearnings and simple joys of living as the ‘little people’ of the capital. His original music vibes blues-folk tunes while his covers give a different perspective on the common Top 40’s list.

Since his big move to Bali in April 2015, he has shared his music all throughout Denpasar, coffee shops in Seminyak and Nusa Dua, events in Sanur and Ubud. It is here in Ubud, where he finally experiments with other traditional instruments of Indonesia, with similar artist-musicians based in Ubud.

On his spare time, Nanda and his wife channel their knack for craftsmanship learned from life on the streets through his line of upcycled products, Bertemu (‘to meet’, in Indonesian), @bertemupcycle, combining tenun with used jute/gunny, spare tyres and scrap leather.
