Beneath the winds: Masterpieces of Southeast Asian Art
18 NOVEMBER TO 29 JANUARY
Beneath the winds: Masterpieces of Southeast Asian Art presents a spectacular selection of works of art from the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia, including many new acquisitions seen for the very first time. The exhibition features 120 works of art, which range in diversity from prehistoric stone sculpture to present day ritual painting, and provides an exciting introduction into the astonishing aesthetic heritage of Southeast Asia.
Among the recent major acquisitions exhibited in Beneath the winds is the monumental Burmese Temple bell, unique for its intact bracket depicting Prince Siddartha. Visitors to the exhibition will also be given the opportunity to glimpse the variety of textile art in the Art Gallery’s collection.
The exhibition coincides with the release of the lavishly illustrated publication Beneath the winds: Masterpieces of Southeast Asian Art from the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia, which will be available from the Gallery Shop.
Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and public holidays at 12 noon
The Beneath the winds family trail invites children and their carers to learn together about the diversity of Southeast Asian art and culture.
