Bali: Art, Ritual, Performance

Bali: Art, Ritual, Performance


Bali: Art, Ritual, Performance by Natasha Reichle

A tiny island in the Indonesian archipelago, surrounded by powerful neighbors, Bali reverberates in the public imagination to an extent far greater than its size might indicate. Indeed, it is one of the most well-known places in Southeast Asia - long celebrated an an exotic locale and a honeymoon paradise - although many know very little about why it gained this reputation.

This catalogue explores elements of the cultural lives of the Balinese, focusing on the intersection of art, ritual and performance. Starting from close examination of one hundred thirty exceptional objects drawn from international museum collections, the authors shed light on the ways that art, ritual and performance interrelate within the seamless fabric of Balinese life.
