Interwoven Journeys: The Michael Abbott collection of Asian art

Adelaide

Free
This exhibition celebrates the many remarkable gifts to AGSA from South Australian barrister Michael Abbott, AO KC.

In Asia, Abbott developed a fascination for textiles — their materiality, meaning and capacity to carry rich cultural traditions. Interwoven Journeys invites visitors to experience the breadth of South Asian and South East Asian art and includes a focus on Balinese, Sumatran and Javanese textiles, including the world’s oldest dated Javanese batik, exhibited for the first time.

The exhibition is complemented by a major publication that describes the way in which Abbott’s generosity has provided a point of convergence for scholars and curators around the world.
