The Sardono Retrospective is a major showcase of this pioneering master performing artist from Southeast Asia. It is a unique occasion to witness and experience his paintings, films and dance choreography, a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see how an artist has evolved over the years by harnessing new ways to express himself. For this retrospective which traces his remarkable artistic oeuvre, Sardono W. Kusumo looks back on what he has learnt from working and performing in the last 50 years with the traditional cultures and arts of Indonesia and its 17,000 islands, where Sumatra and Java are very different from Borneo and Kalimantan.

Expanded Cinema is an eye-opening collection of archive footage, shot with an 8mm camera since 1970, and experimental films by Sardono. Never before exhibited, this personal collection with re-mastered old film prints reveals the background context of his famous modern kecak, the amazing monkey dance, which is seen by most tourists who visit Bali today.
