Christianity in Asia: Sacred Art and Visual Splendour

Asian Civilisations Museum 27 May 2016 - 11 Sep 2016
Christianity in Asia

Christianity in Asia: Sacred Art and Visual Splendour presents fascinating and beautiful objects that are the result of the spread of the Christian faith across Asia. In this special exhibition, with loans from internationally acclaimed museums, including Musée du Louvre, Bibliothèque nationale de France, and Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, Lisbon, you will see art that combines East and West. Asian materials and techniques were used to create paintings, carved ivory figures, ceramics, furniture, altarpieces, and shrines that aided the spread of Christianity. ACM has brought many of these stunning works to Singapore for the very first time. This is an exhibition not to be missed!
