The first installation of the Peck Collection offers a glimpse of its extraordinary depth and quality.
Los Trompos is a large-scale, interactive installation of much-larger-than-life spinning tops (trompos) in a variety of colors and shapes.
Spanning several millennia, as well as the color spectrum, this show presents a continent’s rich history of innovation, invention, and imitation.
A glorious display of the importance of animals and botany in Asian art, Flora and Fauna will feature prayer rugs from the Middle East, statues from India, Chinese paintings, and the debut of the Ackland’s newly acquired pair of Japanese screens by the painter Kajino Genzan.
In this beautifully designed installation, the Ackland presents a powerful and stimulating selection of over 260 works from its extensive permanent collection.
