Arte Moris, Dili

#9 of 22 in Things to do in Dili
Art Gallery · Hidden Gem · Shopping
Arte Moris, which means "living art" in Tetum, presents a way to have a look at ordinary Timorese life through the eyes of local artists via their paintings and sculptures. A seemingly wretched and deserted building hides high-quality modern Timorese art that reflects artists' views of their country's current state. Besides being a cultural center, this edifice also houses the first non-profit fine arts school of East Timor and as such showcases a permanent collection of their students' artwork. While there, you'll have the chance to meet some of the artists and you may even support them by purchasing their artwork. Make Arte Moris part of your personalized Dili itinerary using our Dili road trip planner.
