This Was It
Micro Galleries (Denpasar) took place in the economic heart of the town at the iconic Badung Traditional Market. Overtaken by vehicles, we reclaimed some of this space back for the local community, creating a vibrant and dynamic environment.

Workshops for the community, artist talks, tours of the artworks at the market, a moving images evening all culminated in a micro Slideluck, a huge opening night with live music, projections, and installations – including one floating on the river…breathe.

What They Said
Some juicy bits from our MG Live Jakarta media.
"Art and discourse are intended to recapture lost, unnoticed and unused spaces in public space. Urban development on your own, so to speak. Around 40 artists from 15 nations will revive the streets of Gries with paintings, graffiti, photographs, installations and performances. The project started in 2013 in Hong Kong; stops followed in Australia, South Africa and Indonesia. The Graz edition is the first stop in Europe."
"I don't usually like to walk in such deserted, narrow, often unpleasant alleys, but I like to stroll through here. The reason for this are the many murals and graffiti. Most of them come from the Micro Galleries Festival, which took place in Graz in summer 2016. Some things have also been added, mostly respectfully. And the alleys are surprisingly clean!"
"Blue clouds painted on the wall, printed paper with photographs pasted on the house wall, small concrete castings as Braille on the wall. The Reichengasse looks very different in the next few days. It is more colorful.
"Painting, painting, picking and spraying is happening, because on July 29 the Mirco Galleries will open at Griesplatz."
