After learning a variety of Balinese arts and culture, the student of the University of Western Australia (UWA) organized an international exhibition in the campus of the Indonesian Institute of the Arts (ISI) Denpasar. At least 119 works of the students were on display such as paintings, photography, ceramics and video. The exhibition was opened by Deputy Rector IV of the ISI Denpasar, I Ketut Garwa, together with Winthrop Prof. Simon Anderson, the Dean of the Faculty of Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts of the UWA, Friday (Jan 24) and the exhibition took place for eight days.
Winthrop Prof. Simon Anderson stated that cultural differences did not become a limitation for the ISI and the UWA. Even, it could become a motivation for both parties to get to know and learn about the culture of other nations. “This arrival is to see the development of the ISACFA program that had been running for the fourth time and the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for next year,” he said. Meanwhile, the Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design (FSRD), Ni Made Rinu, said the program took place every year and launched twice a year due to the increasing interest of the students to learn more about the Balinese art and culture.
