The world’s first exhibition on the history and spread of Christianity through Asia, the Asian Civilisations Museum presents Christianity in Asia: Sacred Art and Visual Splendour, its first special exhibition following an extensive revamp.
The exhibition, which comprises 150 items from over 20 renowned institutions and six countries, is the first in the world to examine the history and spread of Christian art in and of Asia. Spanning 800 years of history, Christianity in Asia: Sacred Art and Visual Splendour is a celebration of artistic innovation, experimentation, and the diversity which emerges from cross-cultural influences.
Items on display include rare pieces crafted from ivory and mother-of-pearl, which were coveted by Europe’s royal courts, as well as the masterpieces fashioned by artisans from the religious and trading centres of Goa and Macau from gold, silver, and rock crystal.
All in all, the exhibits come from over 20 institutions in France, Hong Kong, Italy, Philippines, Portugal, and Singapore, and is a true representation of how traditional Western imagery is combined with Asian materials and techniques to result in beautiful objects of devotion.

Featuring commissioned artworks, artist loans and works from the Singapore Art Museum collection, Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas invites visitors into Earth’s watery realms, as seen through the eyes of contemporary artists.
Through the centuries, over numerous expeditions, and with ever- increasing sophistication in science and technology, humankind has sailed the seven seas and plunged into the very depths of oceanic trenches. Yet there remains much to be discovered of this alien world. Odyssey: Navigating Nameless Seas is where artists delve into the unfathomable depths of the ocean’s mysteries, and also think through the tempests that batter our sails on this journey through life. Riddled with twists and turns, where will our explorations take us? While we seem to know more and more about the world around us, to what extent does it give us insights into human nature? To what ends our endless discoveries?
