Cambodian Art from the Angkor Period
March 6 – May 6, 2016 John Young Museum of Art, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Fragments & Empire highlights and brings together for the first time the collection of Cambodian (or Khmer) art from the John Young Museum of Art and a significant portion of John Young’s collection from the Honolulu Museum of Art. Reuniting Young’s collection offers a valuable opportunity to experience the rich tradition of the Angkor period, typically regarded as the Cambodian “Golden Age,” because it was an apex of Khmer political power, and to study these historical works in their cultural and historical contexts. Twenty-four artworks from the John Young Museum of Art and eleven digital images from the Honolulu Museum of Art are featured. The digital images will be viewable on electronic tablets.
