A new program initiated at CushCush Gallery (CCG), DenPasar aims to put Bali’s city center in the island’s mapping of art and design route.
Conceived as an annual group exhibition at CCG, DENPASAR intends to represent the aspirations of creative communities in the present. In keeping with CCG’s goal of actively seeking fresh perspectives, potentially intertwining the different disciplines and contemporary art and design to interact and collaborate, DenPasar2017 is introducing artists and creative who are based in Bali to create works that speak of Denpasar.
DenPasar2017’s major theme pays homage to the significant role of the market in the development of Denpasar city with its many interesting traditional markets and its diverse characteristics. Every year there will be a specific theme as well and for this year it is “Bahasa Pasar” or Market Language. For DenPasar2017, CCG invites Bali-based artists and creative communities/ creatives respond, and give meanings to the understanding of ‘Market’ in Denpasar. Their responses will be presented in the form of two-dimensional artworks (60x40cm). This year, CCG has selected 17 participants from different creative backgrounds.
DenPasar2017 exhibition is to be held from end of May through to August 2017, alongside with the Bali Arts Festival (Pesta Kesenian Bali) in Denpasar.
