Book your place on the Gallery’s latest short course offering
Art and Spirituality in Asia. Designed for individuals with little or no prior knowledge
of Asian art or religions, as well as for those who wish to further deepen their understanding,
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 the leading spiritual traditions – Ancestral beliefs, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Christianity – which have influenced Asian art from prehistoric times to the modern era. By examining the interface between personal 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 feature compelling presentations by James Bennett, Curator of Asian Art, and guest lecturers from Indonesian, Chinese, Syrian and Australian backgrounds.
