Biasa Art Space Overview

Biasa art space was started as a natural response to Susanna Perini’s encounter with the upcoming artists in Java and Bali. The art gallery came to the public with an exhibition in 2005 with which the founder was trying to present the contemporary Indonesian and international artists to the visitors of Bali as well as the natives. Through the exhibition, she was capturing the eyes of people toward the development of the progressive art the young talents can bring forth.

Several years down the line, the gallery managed to attract a lot of artists come and have dialogues and interact with the public. A number of exhibitions and projects were staged in collaboration with national and international art institutions.

Highlights: The solo and group exhibitions conducted here introduced many artists from different parts of the world including Jumaldi Alfi, Enzo Cucchi, Heri Dono, Matteo Basile, FX Harsono, and much more. There are currently two exhibition spaces.

One on level 2 which has the newly launched BIASA+ retail store in Seminyak and other above the retail store in Kemang, Jakarta. They continue to exhibit solo and group exhibitions with the help of Government and private institutions.

Biasa Artspace is a conceptualized contemporary art gallery accompanied by a designer boutique in Bali and Jakarta. Founded by Susanna Perini in 1994, it is a platform where art merges with retail to deliver a sense of co-living with the abstract. People with an elite sense of art are usually captivated by this unique combination of artistry and its application in the form of clothing, home essentials, decor and many more.

The initial idea of Biasa was dissolving art, thought, and culture into clothing and lifestyle. However, in the course of time, its expansion added a voice to Indonesian art and artists when Perini in 2005 began the art space to support and exhibit their work. Ideologically, Biasa as a brand is identified for its creative cuts, artisanal details, organic use of dyes and lenin along with rich handmade detailing to slay a tropical summer look. If your fashion choices are classy, subtle and sophisticated, this is the brand to look out for. The linen clothing here with creative designs reflect symbolism and a sense of individual uniqueness.

You can expect to find an item of comfortable clothing that you wouldn’t want to let go because of the light, soft and cherishable feel of it. You could also find interesting home wear, accessories and home decor here. Adding to fashion, a tour across this art space is a visual treat as it exhibits works of various Indonesian and artists across the world such as Ivan Sagita, Jumaldi Alfi, Marco Cassani, Narcisse Tordoir, Fendry Ekel, Shira Wachsmann, Zohar Fraiman and many more. Visiting this place to look out for the latest works of artists is one thing you must add in your itinerary if you pay a visit to Bali.
