Islamic Arts from Southeast Asia: Highlights of the Asian Civilisations Museum

07 Jul 2012 – 20 Jan 2013 @ Gallery 2, ACM Empress Place

Showcasing works of art drawn exclusively from the collections of the Asian Civilisations Museum, this exhibition reveals how artistic forms from central Islamic lands were transformed by regional traditions. Religious objects such as Qur’ans, calligraphy, and tomb markers, will be displayed along with secular objects, including arms, textiles, and pottery from Indonesia and Malaysia. The exhibition will also showcase Chinese porcelain and enamels made for local Muslim patrons in the region.
