Who We Are
Our Advisory Board
Galleries on the first floor tell the story of Trade and the Maritime Silk Routes. This begins from the 9th century with the Tang Shipwreck collection, and continues through displays of Asian export art – revealing the history of Asian port cities and globalisation, long before the term was coined.
Second floor galleries present systems of Faith and Belief; their origins in Asia, their spread across the continent by land and by sea, and their localisation each step of the way.
Ancestors and Rituals
Decorative art is the focus on the third floor. Themed to Materials and Design, galleries here celebrate our Asian aesthetic and craftsmanship, through objects that illuminate global, regional, and local exchanges.
