(2/12/2011)

A large contingent representing the Bali arts community is headed for San Francisco in late February 2011 to participate in the official opening of a major 6-month exhibition of Balinese art and culture at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum.

Claimed to be the largest Balinese exhibition ever held in the U.S.A., the San Francisco event will include many items borrowed from private collections never before shown to the public.

Organized with the support of the Bali Institute, many leading advisors of the Institutes's annual conference will be on hand in San Francisco to attend the gala opening. Among the dignitaries from Bali currently expected to attend include Mr. and Mrs. Tjokorda Gede Putra A. A. Sukawati of the Ubud palace; Mr. and Mrs. Nyoman Gunarsa of the Nyoman Gunarsa Museum and head of the Bali Museum Association; Mr. and Mrs. Pande Wayan Suteja Neka from Neka Museum; Mr. and Mrs. Nyoman Sumerta of the Sumerta Gallery; Mr. and Mrs. Anak Agung Gede Rai of ARMA Museum; and ZANZAN of Green Spirit Bali.

While in San Francisco the visiting Balinese will join the opening ceremonies at the museum, be hosted at several VIP events organized by the Bali Institute and attend a reception in their honor at the Indonesian Consulate.

The Institute of Noetic Sciences will also be hosting a lunch and dialogue on Bali during the visit.

In preparation for the exhibition, Deborah Clearwaters, the museum's director of education visited Bali in 2008 to hold meetings and view materials that have helped inspire the coming exhibition. Clearwaters has gathered rare video footage that convey the integration of art, performance and ritual in Balinese daily life. Artifacts and live performance featuring master artists from Bali and the U.S.A. will also for a part of the exhibition.

Among the highlight of the San Francisco exhibition:

• An opening celebration in February featuring sacred dance and music.

• Also in February, a symposium featuring curators of Balinese art and international scholars sponsored by the Society for Asia Art.

• In March, the premiers of two contemporary musical works: Creatures of Balinese Mythologyfeaturing the Bay Area musical ensemble Gamelan Sekar Jaya Makrokosma Bali - a new multimedia musical work performed by composer Wayne Vitale together with a Balinese gamelan troupe.
