ACM will welcome a selection of Chinese Christian art from the Vatican Museums in Rome, in its latest rotation of the Christian Art Gallery. Drawn from the Anima Mundi (meaning “Soul of the World”), these are little-known treasures of Christian art made in Asia. These beautiful creations complement the existing display containing masterpieces from Singapore’s National Collection, reminding us of the history of religious harmony and tolerance amid diverse faiths around the world.
ACM and Anima Mundi: Chinese Christian art from the Vatican Museums is a part of ACM’s year-long series of programmes and gallery rotations in commemoration of its 25th anniversary, dedicated to the cross-cultural connections and shared heritage of Singapore and the region.
From October 2022, the public can visit a refreshed Christian Art Gallery and see a selection of Chinese Christian art loaned from the Vatican Museums in Rome. A selection of masterpieces from the Anima Mundi (meaning “Soul of the World”) entered the Christian Art Gallery in October. These treasures complement the current display of precious Christian art objects from the National Collection, and will be on show for a year.
Venue: Asian Civilisations Museum
When: 1 Oct 2022 - 31 Dec 2023,
