This event has passed.

Date & time

All day on the 1st of February 2014
until the 27th of March at 5:00pm



1 Finnerty Street Fremantle WA 6160
  • East End


Bali: return economy is an expansive exhibition that looks beyond the cliche's and kitsch souvenirs to get to the heart of a dynamic relationship between neighbours.

Featuring works as diverse as video art, policial cartoons, age-old wayang paintings and the cutting edge contemporary Balinese art often missed by tourists, this exhibition draws together an electic, far-reaching group of leadin Indonesian and WA artists.

Bali: return economy also presents pieces from some of WA's largest private collections of Balinese art including works from the collection of Chris and Mary Hill, the Bernadt Family collection, Kamasan paintings from the collection of John Johnson, sculptures from the City of Fremantle Art Collection and ceramics from the Edith Cowan University collection.

Curated by Ric Spencer and Chris Hill. Exhibition manager Desak Dharmayanti
