ACMtalks: Director’s sharing: ACM 2021
Join Director Kennie Ting for this first public talk about ACM’s new positioning as Singapore’s National Museum of Asian Antiquities and Decorative Art. This aligns with ACM’s by now familiar cross-cultural, thematic curatorial approach – with the three levels of the museum spotlighting Maritime Trade, Faith and Belief, and Materials and Design. It also strengthens the role ACM seeks to play in Singapore and the region. Kennie will also touch on how the pandemic has impacted work at the museum.
Accompanying this talk is the launch of the book Director’s Choice: Asian Civilisations Museum, the latest entry in the worldwide, multi-volume series by Scala Arts & Heritage Publishers. The book highlights the museum’s masterpieces and its devotion to the rich artistic heritage of Asia.
