Ornamenting the Ordinary
Crafts of South Asia
September 10, 2016 – January 2, 2017
Learn about the artistic styles, craftsmanship, and craft traditions of South Asia’s many culturally diverse regions. The travelling exhibition, on loan from the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), spans Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Tibet. This exhibition is presented in English and French.
A display of Lower Mainland collectors’ textiles, housewares, weapons and other items complements the exhibition. The locally curated objects demonstrate the cultural richness of Metro Vancouver’s South Asian identity.
This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
