Fragments & Empire: Cambodian Art From the Angkor Period
March 6, 2016 - May 6, 2016
Mānoa Campus, John Young Museum of Art
"Fragments & Empire" examines Cambodian (or Khmer) art of the Angkor Empire, which dominated much of mainland Southeast Asia from the ninth through the fifteenth centuries. It includes examples of sandstone architectural fragments, ceremonial bronzes, and stoneware vessels associated with the styles of the imperial capital as well as their transmission into peripheral regions in modern-day northeastern Thailand.
This exhibition highlights and brings together for the first time the collection of Cambodian art from the John Young Museum of Art (JYMA) and a significant portion of John Youngâ€™s collection from the Honolulu Museum of Art (HMA). It offers an opportunity to study the historical works as a comprehensive collection. Twenty-four artworks from the JYMA and eleven digital images from the HMA are featured. The digital images will be viewable on electronic tablets.
This exhibition is curated by Kristin Remington as part of her MA thesis in South and Southeast Asian art history, Department of Art + Art History, UH MÄnoa.
Gallery hours: (TBA). Admission is free. Donations are appreciated. Parking fees may apply.
