Book your place on the Gallery’s latest short course offering
Art and spirituality in Asian art. Designed for individuals with little or no prior
knowledge of Asian art or religions, this course introduces the rich heritage of art created in the
spiritual traditions of Asia which continue to resonate today.
Belief and religion have played defining roles in the history of art in Asia. This short course will explore four leading spiritual traditions – Ancestral beliefs, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam – which have influenced Asian art from prehistoric times to the modern era. By examining the interface between religious belief and creativity, the course will enable participants to gain a richer appreciation of both Asian art and these spiritual traditions. Each of the four sessions will include compelling presentations by a curator, scholar and practitioner.
