PUBLIC TALK: View from the Shore
|View from the Shore : the cultural impact of globalization on Indonesia during the Age of Spices
A public lecture by James Bennett, Curator of Asian Art, Art Gallery of South Australia and co-curator of 'Treasure Ships: Art in the Age of Spices' Exhibition.
In this lecture, James Bennett will explore the Indonesian pesisir art featured in 'Treasure Ships: Art in the Age of Spices'. He will discuss the cultural impact of globalization on the art of the archipelago that resulted in 19th century European colonial rulers perceiving its aesthetic identity merely as 'traditional craft'.
This lecture is presented by the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies and the Art Gallery of Western Australia and is part of a special lecture series being held in conjunction with the 'Treasure Ships: Art in the Age of Spices' Exhibition.
The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Art Gallery of South Australia and is on display at the Art Gallery of Western Australia from 10 October 2015 - 31 January 2016.
