Museum Explorer [Christianity in Asia: Sacred Art and Visual Splendour – ACM, SG]
While this post seems a bit long overdue, did not have time to visit the Museum till not too long ago.
Took the chance to make the visit during the long National Day weekend (Aug 6 – 9, 2016).
This exhibition show cases a different aspect of this religion from the arts and visual effects point of understanding how Christianity was woven into various ethics and culture practices over the past few hundred years of existance in Asia. It offers a interesting view which many might not be even aware of.
Right at the beginning of the exhibition we are welcomed by the symbols of the religion as seen below.
The exhibition explores how christianity spread throughout Asia and how it influences the various civilisations, cultures and imperial courts of the various countries. The various arts and artefacts were also displayed.
It gives the visitor a insight into the development in Asia from the 15th century till the present day and the last segment was dedicated to the religions progress in Singapore from 1819 to present day.
At the end of the exhibition is the activity area where you can fold paper cranes or experience some visual and tactile activity with the tools and workbook provided.
