The Khmer civilisation was one of the greatest Southeast Asia had ever known. At the heart of it is the city of Angkor, which at its height, from the 11th through 13th century, was one of the largest anywhere in the world. The landscape was punctuated by great stepped, pyramidal temple-mountains built by successive kings to honour their gods.
Join Theresa McCullough, Principal Curator of the Asian Civilisations Museum, as she explores the artistic legacy of Khmer culture through its art and architecture and touches on recent ground-breaking discoveries that are continuing to reshape our understanding of this rich civilisation.
This talk is held in conjunction of the exhibition of Dinh Q. Lê: Monuments and Memorials.
