This online exhibition explores Balinese ceremonies that mark major stages in an individual’s life— Nelubulanin and Otonan (three-month and one-year ceremonies, respectively), Metatah and Menik Kelih (coming-of-age ceremonies), and Ngaben (cremation ceremony). Videos and in-depth research on key ceremonial objects and textiles offer unique insight into these ceremonies.

This project was featured in the Fabricating Power with Balinese Textiles exhibition held at the Bard Graduate Center Gallery February 23–July 8, 2018.
