Afterhours@ACM: Chateauneuf-du-Pape Top Picks 15 June 2016

Tour our new special exhibition, Christianity in Asia: Sacred Art and Visual Splendour, then savour our selection of gloriously rich wines of elegance and finesse from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The famed region was long-entwined with papal history, and the wines were dubbed “Vin du Pape” – wine of the Pope, by John XXII back in the 14th century.

Wines carefully curated for the evening are from a family estate producer active since 1826.

Tour Christianity in Asia: Sacred Art and Visual Splendour

Displaying masterpieces of Christian art made across Asia by artists of various faiths, the exhibition shows how works of Asian Christian art combine traditional Western imagery with Asian materials and artistic techniques. Christianity in Asia showcases ACM’s rich collection – including many new acquisitions – and stunning masterpieces from 6 countries and 20 lending institutions, including the Musée du Louvre, and Bibliothèque nationale de France. With objects never before on loan, nor seen in Singapore, this is an exhibition not to be missed.
