Event Details

The next ADFAS (Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society) Shoalhaven lecture is to be given by Adrian Vickers, Professor of South East Asian Studies at the University of Sydney, author of many books and expert on the art of this richly diverse nation.  He has been director of the Australian Centre for Asian Art and Archaeology and a visiting fellow at Magdalene College, Cambridge. Adrian consults to business and organisations and is consulted by national and international media on Indonesia and Australian-Indonesian relations.

Adrian’s books on Bali and Indonesia are extensive and fascinating.

Indonesia is a nation of 18,000 islands and more than 200 cultures. It’s rich textile and tribal sculptural traditions illustrate the diversity of this nation,  using motifs to present connections between ancestors and daily life; e.g. mythical creatures, boats and fertility signs. This lecture will expand on these themes in the art of this diverse nation.
