Arte Moris, Dili

(4.2/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
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.
