The much-celebrated Balinese impressionist painter and museum curator, I Nyoman Gunarsa, will mark the 10th anniversary of the Museum I Nyoman Gunarsa in Gianyar with the launching of a new book; the presentation of awards to members of Bali's community involved in cultural development; and the presentation of a colossal multi-media cultural performance. Following a gala launch on Friday, January 16, 2004, a solo exhibition of recent work by Gunarsa will be held at the museum through January 30, 2004.

Moksa – An Existence Without Limits

The mega-event draws its inspiration from the Artist's artistic and spiritual renewal following a major stroke he suffered in December 1998. Some 101 paintings produced between 1996-2003 will trace Gunarsa's struggle to return to his art and his inner-spiritual journey to achieve the Hindu state of moksa - when one is freed of the restraints of earthly desires and becomes one with all the order and disorder that comprise the cosmos.

Jatayu Sang Maestro

As part of the anniversary celebration Nyoman Gunarsa will also launch a book entitled "Jatayu Sang Maestro, Nyoman Gunarsa, Water, Colour dan Sketsa." The book written in English, Indonesian and German, will present a collection of Mr. Gunarsa's latest work and be the sixth edition of a book commemorating his body of work.

Performance Moska

The celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Museum will explore the same theme via a colossal presentation of dance and music performed by the students and faculty of the Indonesian Art Institute (ISI). The performance will be supported by a high-tech light and sound staging that will include laser-effects and fireworks.

Aji Sewaka Nugraha

During the opening of the anniversary celebrations, Nyoman Gunarsa will present Aji Sewaka Nugraha Awards to 11 members of the community for their service to the community and culture. Those to be honored are:

• I Gede Ardika, Minister of Culture and Tourism

• Drs. Dewa Made Beratha, Governor of Bali

• Drs. Made Mangku Pastika, the Chief of Police for Bali

• Ida Pedanda Gede Made Gunung, a Balinese religious leader

• Guruh Soekarnoputa, son of Indonesia's first president and brother of President Megawati, a nationally-recognized artist in the fields of music and dance

• Dr. Wayan Rai S, the Rector of the Indonesian Art Institute (ISI) recognized for his research on Balinese culture

• Putu Wijaya, a nationally-famous playwright and author

• I Wayan Sukra (Thomas U. Frietag) an author and international cultural authority

• Made Wijaya (Michael White), a designer of spaces, buildings, and Balinese gardens

• Jean Couteau, prolific writer and expert on Balinese art and culture

• Tjokorde Gede Agung Suyasa, an intellectual leader in the field of Balinese culture and society.
