For the first time in many years, Darwin audiences will have the opportunity to see the rich diversity and splendour of Balinese art in an exhibition at Charles Darwin University Art Gallery. Taksu: The Art of Bali will profile recent gifts to Charles Darwin University by two of Australia’s most prominent collectors and devotees of Balinese art, Michael Abbott AO QC and the late Christopher Hill.

Highlights include early 20th century sculpture, ceremonial textiles and painted temple cloths, performance masks, and Wayang Kulit shadow puppets and paintings, that demonstrate the inextricable links between Balinese ceremonial life and creativity.
