Recent Asian AcquisitionsJanuary 17, 2014 - January 17, 2014
Curated by Barry Till | Founders Gallery
Through its history, the AGGV has received a remarkable number of Asian art donations, which in terms of numbers is now approximately 42-43% of the entire collection. Every five or six years, the Asian art department shows its recent Asian acquisitions. We are indeed fortunate in having great and dedicated patrons in Victoria and across the country as well as the US. This exhibition is in their honour. All these donations over the years have made the Asian art collection of the AGGV the second most comprehensive East Asian collection in Canada (second only to the Royal Ontario Museum).
The Asian art gifts that we have received represent a wide range of cultures, media and time periods.
