Showcasing works of art drawn exclusively from the collections of the Asian Civilisations Museum, this exhibition reveals how artistic forms from central Islamic lands were transformed by regional traditions. Religious objects such as Qur’ans, calligraphy, and tomb markers, will be displayed along with secular objects, including arms, textiles, and pottery from Indonesia and Malaysia. The exhibition will also showcase Chinese porcelain and enamels made for local Muslim patrons in the region.

The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) is the first museum in the region to present a broad yet integrated perspective of pan-Asian cultures and civilisations. As one of the National Museums of Singapore under the National Heritage Board, we seek to promote a better appreciation of the rich cultures that make up Singapore’s multi-ethnic society.
