North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2016

The course information on this page is being finalised for 2016. Please check again before classes commence.

This course surveys the development of Southeast Asian aesthetics with a focus on the ways that ceramics and textiles have articulated the region's cultural and spiritual identity. The growth of Vietnamese, Thai, and Cambodian ceramic production will be explored as will the role of high-fired pottery documenting social history and cultural exchange in Southeast Asia. The study in textiles concentrates mainly on Indonesia and East Timor where textile artists have transformed designs imported into the archipelago from India and China into a rich indigenous art tradition. The course draws on the Gallery's rich collection and may also include a field trip to Southeast Asia.
