Textiles and Jewellery from Central Asia

Join Carol Cains, Curator of Asian Art at the NGV, and Anthony Camm, Director of the Ararat Regional Art Gallery, for a viewing of Adorned: Textiles and Jewellery from Central Asia. The exhibition draws on the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria to present a window onto the magnificent sartorial traditions of the vast Central Asian region stretching from China in the east to the Caspian Sea in the west, and between Russia in the north and Pakistan in the south. The exhibition, comprising over sixty works, explores textiles and jewellery from Central Asia through the distinctive traditions of two of the largest cultural groups of the region, the Uzbek and Turkmen peoples.
