Despite the rain, the opening of BASQUIAT AND FRIENDS” by Roland Hagenberg on 7th November was a lively affair with a great turn out. The guests really appreciated the rare opportunity to meet Roland and to converse with him about his work, Basquiat, and New York in the 80's. Swing jazz music performed by Bert Amparado and Jason Cheng livened up the ambience, getting us into a dancing mood! The rain kept pouring on the next day while  Roland giving a talk on "Basquiat’s New York: Capturing the mood of a bygone era". It didn’t douse our enthusiasm for Roland, Basquiat and New York, though: the room was filled to capacity. It was a precious event where the audience heard firsthand about what it was like being a part of the 80's New York art scene. They also learned more about Roland's various projects, such as the Stork House and Raiding Project with leading architects. All in all, it was an illuminating and inspiring talk.

Tumpek Pengatang (a special day to express gratitude to all the Plants that nature provides)

Event Date: 22 November 2014 

Venue : Bali Island


Hindu Balinese posses a very rich repertoire of rituals covering many aspects of life. One of them is strongly related to the world of plants; it is about what nature provides for our life. "Tumpek Pengatang", or also known as "Tumpek Wariga" falls on Saturday, 22 November this year. The day will be devoted to the God manisfested in "Sangkara", who maintains the safety of all crops, ensuring their healthy growth to provide good harvest. The ceremony is also called "Tumpek Pengarah", which means 'notification' - to remind people that the main ceremony "Galungan" is exactly 25 days ahead from this day. The essence of this ritual is to remind all human beings to respect, to take care, to honour and to live in harmony with nature, especially with plants.
