On 2 October 2009 UNESCO recognised Javanese batik as an item of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
To celebrate this Caloundra Regional Gallery brings together two batik collections: one of batiks from the North Coast of Java and the other now held as memory and represented in the recent paintings by contemporary Indonesian artist Dadang Christanto (now resident in Brisbane).
An element of these paintings depicts as fragments of memory and loss, batiks from the collection of his mother's shop.
The selection of batiks from the Sunshine Coast collection of Greg Roberts and Ian Reed includes exquisite examples of North Coast Javanese textiles.
