Join us for the UK launch of Vibrancy In Stone, the newly-published catalogue of the Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture. The catalogue, supported by the Southeast Asian Art Academic Programme (SAAAP) at SOAS University of London, marks the centenary of the Cham Museum and is the first catalogue by the Museum itself of its world-leading collection. The catalogue brings together the work of international scholars, local scholars and SOAS alumni, and is edited by Vietnamese Museum Director Vo Van Thang, leading Vietnamese art historian Tran Ky Phuong and Peter Sharrock of SOAS. At the event, the Editors will deliver lectures on their contribution to the publication and consider the background to the text. Copies of the catalogue will be on hand to purchase, and a drinks reception will follow.
