Despite the proliferation of clichéd paintings in Ubud, there are also some terrific modern art galleries featuring artists from Indonesia and around the world, with exhibitions changing regularly.
While most specialise in paintings, some also include sculpture, ceramics and installations. You’ll find a handful of decent galleries on Jalan Raya Sanggingan on the way north towards Sayan. Have a look also at Pengosekan, Penestanan and Batuan districts, for interesting local art studios and workshops.
Exhibition openings in Ubud are usually interesting and well-attended. Keep an eye on our Events Calendar for details.
