No Bars to Artistic Expression

Prisoners from Bali's Kerobokan Prison Exhibit and Auction Art at Gaya Fusion Gallery November 25 - December 2, 2010.


(11/20/2010)

Don't expect to meet the artists at a coming exhibition and auction of art by long-term Bali residents to be held at the Gaya Fusion Gallery in Sayan, Ubud. Most of the artists, although present on the island, will be some 20 kilometers away, locked behind bars at Bali's notorious Kerobokan Prison.

A prison-based Arts and Craft Department set up by convicted "Bali Nine" drug smuggler Myuran Sukumaran provides hope, rehabilitation and inspiration to fellow convicts via projects focusing on design, painting, sculpture, silver-working, graphic art, sewing, t-shirt printing and even kick-boxing.

The exhibition that opens at Gaya Fusion on Thursday, November 25, 2010, will run until its conclusion one week later on Thursday, December 2, 2010, when an auction and dinner will be held, commencing at 7:00 pm.

Proceeds from the evening will be used to fund the prison arts project.

The closing gala dinner will cost only Rp. 200,000 (US$21.80) per person and includes admission to the auction conducted by Bali-based art expert Bruce W. Carpenter. In addition to the art produced by prisoners, a valuable painting by Bali's renowned Painter-Poet-Hotelier John O'Sullivan will also be sold. During the evening and prior to the auction a screening of a documentary shot at the prison by Caroline Thomas of Global Village Films will also take place.

Reservations for the closing dinner close on November 30th and can be made by contacting:

Gaya Fusion - Jalan Raya Sayan, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
