A Message from Our Co-Founder
Bali has already a long list of established museums, with the Museum Gedong Kirtya (Singaraja, 1928), Museum Bali ( Denpasar, 1932), Museum Le Mayeur (Sanur 1957), Museum Puri Lukisan (Ubud ,1958), Museum Neka (Ubud, 1996), Museum ARMA (Ubud, 1996) to name a few among other well known museum in Bali. Why another one?
To make contribution, however, Pasifika had to be different. That was done in 1940,by Miguel Covarrubias who, after publishing his book on Bali in 1937, illuminated the pageant of the Pacific exhibition in San Francisco by creating six mural decoration and contributing to exhaustive ethnographic study of the region for the event. This exhibition remind us of every important statement by the renowned art professor Adrian Vickers in his book Bali : A Paradise Created: “Asia and Pacific Meet in Bali”
So, now 11 years after its opening and continual improvements, over 600 object together with 200 sculpture created by 200 artist of 25 nationalities are on display. We hope to provide Bali residents, Indonesian visitors and overseas tourist a brief introduction to some of the Asia Pacific’s unique variety of cultural artifacts that now meets in Bali .
Possessing nearly half of the worlds population, the Asia Pacific region is incredibly diverse. Hundreds of ethnic groups and languages have created a kaleidoscope of art forms that remains unparalleled to this day.
Museum Pasifika was established as a permanent institution to showcase these style and forms for all humanity to study and enjoy. The first of its kind in this part of the world, is to present artist from the Pacific area to South East Asia, the Indonesian archipelago with the island of Bali being the meeting point of those two worlds.
Located in Nusa Dua Complex south of Bali, the Museum Pasifika built in 12,000 square meters land is articulated on 8 pavilions and 11 rooms of exhibition halls. Featuring 600 artworks of 200 artist from 25 country who lived and inspired by Asia Pacific.
Museum Pasifika holds an impressive collection of historical and masterpiece paintings, sculpture from all over Asia Pacific. A cultural center with an educational and social role, an International standard tourist attraction in south Bali.
