Dear Singaporean Asian Civilizations Museum: but what are these cross-cultural treasures?!

Devotion & Desire: Cross-Cultural Art in Asia, New Acquisitions of the Asian Civilisations Museum 30 May 2013 - 08 Dec 2013 @ Special Exhibitions Gallery, ACM Empress Place When cultures come together, distinctive works of art are created. This exhibition reveals new directions for the Asian Civilisations Museum, which has recently focused on building understanding of the diverse cultures of Asia. The objects reveal surprising connections between Asian cultures, and between Asia and the wider world. Cross-cultural works of art are powerful indicators that peoples of diverse cultures and faiths have lived together harmoniously for centuries throughout Asia. Themes of the exhibition include the importance of trade, transmission of religions, courtly art, and colonial networks. This is the first time that the public has the opportunity to see many of these new treasures.
