GI-50138-11

Asian Art Museum (San Francisco, CA 94118)
Natasha Reichle (Project Director: February 2009 to present)

Bali: Art, Ritual, Performance

Implementation of a traveling exhibition, a catalog, a website, and public and educational programs on the arts of Bali.

The Asian Art Museum in San Francisco respectfully requests a National Endowment for the Humanities grant of $400,000 within the Implementation Grants for Museums and Historical Organizations category. NEH funding will enable the Asian Art Museum to organize, design, and present an extraordinary traveling exhibition, Bali: Art, Ritual, Performance. This will be the first ever large-scale exhibition in the U.S. to explore the arts of Bali. The nearly 9,000 square-foot exhibition will consist of three major components--150 objects borrowed from museum and private collections in the U.S. and the Netherlands; an enclosed courtyard devoted to the ephemeral arts; a complementary series of video clips, artist demonstrations, and live performances. It will be presented in at least two major U.S. venues: the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco (June 11-September 19, 2010) and the Dallas Museum of Art (February-May 2011). (Currently, several other museums are considering presenting the exhibition.)
