Art In Bali | Written By, NOW! BALI-2 | December 1st, 2014

ArtPreciation successfully completed its second trial of its ArtDiscovery program last month. The October trials hosted industry members to give them a taste of what is to come for the future of art in Bali. Beginning in the Chedi Club Ubud, a resort that provides the perfect traditional backdrop, the participants began the experience with an educational workshop. Through this workshop, they learned the history of art in the country: from its first ever conception through to its development in time to become what it is today. 

ArtPreciation successfully completed its second trial of its ArtDiscovery program last month. The October trials hosted industry members to give them a taste of what is to come for the future of art in Bali. Beginning in the Chedi Club Ubud, a resort that provides the perfect traditional backdrop, the participants began the experience with an educational workshop. Through this workshop, they learned the history of art in the country: from its first ever conception through to its development in time to become what it is today.
Following this was a tour around The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, Ubud, a resort that uses paintings to define key spaces, but also using the spaces to expose important works of art to visitors. A three-course lunch was then served in the padi-surrounded restaurant of the resort, serving wonderful examples of Balinese cuisine to the guests.
In order to epitomise the ideas learned in the morning’s workshop, participants were brought to the Agung Rai Museum of Art. Here they were led by the knowledgeable museum curator and witnessed the visual changes in Balinese art through time.

Finally, participants received the unique privilege of visiting a local artist’s workspace. Made Djirna, one of Bali’s most prominent artists, opened his studio to the guests, a place that truly reflected an artist’s mind and world. He discussed his ideas regarding art and himself as an artist, providing intriguing discussions with all that were present.
Working with Destination Asia, the ArtDiscovery tours brings those keen to immerse themselves into the world of Balinese art. It makes sure to delve into the details of the relevant historical and contemporary matters surrounding visual art on the island, providing an engaging and informative experience for all. ArtDiscovery Tours will be open to the public soon, keep on the look out!
