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

video art, political cartoons, age-old wayang paintings and the cutting
edge contemporary Balinese art often missed by tourists, this exhibition draws
together an eclectic, far-reaching group of leading Indonesian and WA artists.

collections of Balinese art including works from the collection of Chris and
