While Tina Turner plaintively sings "we don't need a another hero." Those who follow Bali's art scene beg to differ. The world has an insatiable hunger for artists: people who can challenge our perception, compel us to view the world from a different perspective and sometimes provide insights on how to improve the human condition.
With this in mind, Hanna Artspace
in Ubud, Bali has named its coming exhibition of 10 leading Balinese artists "Superheroes". In so doing, the aim is not solely to invent and idolize the "hero" but to also encourage all of us to emulate the heroism of people of vision. Within each of us resides the seed of true heroism: the potential to perform heroic deeds on behalf of our neighbors, nation and the plant.
The young artists displaying their work in this two-week exhibition endeavor to answer a variety of questions: How to be hero? What are the worth causes surrounding us that merit our valor?
The heroes among us are not always easily recognized. They seldom wear the spandex of Cat Woman, Spider Man, Batman
Our heroes have lower profiles and, like the artists participating in this exhibition, live simple lives dedicated to personal excellence, creativity and sustainability.Super Heroes
