The Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at UBC presents the insightful and explorative new exhibition Traces of Words: Art and Calligraphy from Asia (May 11 - October 9, 2017). Honouring the special significance that written forms hold across many diverse cultures in Asia, the multimedia exhibition will examine the physical traces of words – spoken and recorded – that are unique to humans. From Sumerian cuneiform inscriptions and Qu’ranic manuscripts, to Chinese calligraphy and Afghan graffiti, the texts in many styles evoke both the ephemeral and eternal. Expertly curated by Dr. Fuyubi Nakamura (MOA Curator, Asia), Traces of Words will feature works by international artists: Shamsia Hassani, Kimura Tsubasa, Yugami Hisao, Nortse, Phaptawan Suwannakudt, and teamLab. The exhibit will also showcase two works from the Aga Khan Museum, as well as highlights from MOA’s Asian collection including calligraphy by Dr. Sun Yat-Sen. The exhibition opening takes place on Thursday, May 11 at 7pm and is free to the public.
