Master Classes Semester Two 2015

Treasure ships: Art in the Age of Spices - 31 July 2015
This master class is held at the Art Gallery of SA and entails a special tour by James Bennett, Curator of Asian Art.

Please note that this class is restricted to 11 students and the cost, which is the entrance fee, is to be paid on arrival at the Art Gallery.

Art in the Age of Spices is the first exhibition in Australia to present the complex artistic and cultural interactions between Europe and Asia from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries—a period known as the Age of Spices.  This exhibition includes 300 outstanding and rarely-seen works of ceramics, decorative arts, furniture, metalware, paintings, prints and textiles from public and private collections in Australia, India, Portugal, Singapore and the United States. The works of art selected reveal how the international trade in spices and other exotic commodities inspired dialogue between Asian and European artists, a centuries old conversation whose heritage is the aesthetic globalism we know today.
A highlight of the exhibition will be a diverse range of Christian artwork created at ports such as Goa and Nagasaki on loan from Portugal and India as well as the inclusion of two works from the personal collection of Queen Adelaide (1792–1849) after whom the city of Adelaide is named. Another highlight are some artefacts retrieved from VOC ship Batavia, which sank off the Western Australian coast in the seventeenth century.
