Gaya Fusion Art Space – Ubud, Bali
“Indonesia's most influential contemporary art gallery” --Harper's Bazaar (March 2007)
With a roster of the leading artists showing in Indonesia today, Gaya Art Space has had an unparalleled impact on contemporary Indonesian art. Made Wianta created Dreamland here before taking it to the 2003 Venice Biennale, the first year since 1964 that Indonesia had a pavilion at the world's premiere visual art event. Krisna Murti filmed his 2005 Venice exhibition, Video Spa, at Gaya. Dadang Christanto had his first Bali show here.
Gaya events in all fields of contemporary art and culture bring together some of the most interesting people around — artists, journalists, critics, collectors, movie stars, directors, ambassadors, architects, professors, designers, royalty, dreamers, politicians, former political prisoners, philosophers, outcasts, and writers.

Tegun Folk Art Galeri – A Unique Bali Gift Shop – 44 Jln Hanoman, Ubud
| Tegun Galeri brings together the concepts of a museum and a shop. The intriguing, ever-changing collection includes everything from primitive carvings to highly refined woodwork, textiles and other crafts. |
Tegun Galeri is a certain cure to Bali Fatigue. Tegun, one of Ubud's largest and most varied shops, prides itself on offering to both wholesales and retail customers a starling array of unique Indonesian handicrafts and folk art. The Galeri, on Jalan Hanoman, is notable for its large doors and broads windows, both of each draw Ubud's many strollers into a shop. Once, inside, the knowledgeable staff are close at hand, available to field questions and handle specials requests while, at the same time, letting each shoppers explore the store at this or her own pace. This relaxing, "laid back" environment is a big asset to shoppers, and contrasts with the more hectic atmosphere in other stores on the island.
Meghan and Kadek, the owners of Tegun Galeri, travel constantly to distant corners of Indonesia and across South East and East Asia, in search of unusual and beautiful pieces of folk art.

Seniwati Gallery of Art by Women – Ubud, Bali
| The Seniwati Gallery of Art by Women was founded in 1991, in response to the total lack of awareness of the existence of women artists at that time. Over its 15 years of existence it has become one of the most respected and exciting galleries of Balinese art with a full programme of exhibitions, one-woman or group shows and events for art lovers and collectors. It also has assisted many female artists to travel overseas whether for exhibition purposes or for educational studies, or both. For 14 years, they have run a weekly workshop for young Balinese girl artists, to encourage their skills and confidence and to show their families that their talents are valued in the wider world. |
The Seniwati Gallery is rightly becoming famous not only for its unique role, but also for the very high quality of art that it offers to the art-loving public to enjoy. This is the only Bali gallery that President Jimmy Carter and Mrs Carter chose to visit during their Democracy-supporting trip to Indonesia; and for many visitors to the world-famous town of Ubud, this gallery is first on their list!
