Treasure Ships: Art in the Age of Spices

10 October 2015 - 31 January 2016

Treasure Ships: Art in the Age of Spices features the spectacular and exotic art produced for global markets from the sixteenth to early nineteenth centuries.

Demand for spices spurred on the great voyages of exploration and the establishment of vast empires across Asia. Treasure Ships presents the stories of the spice markets, slave trade and shipwrecks, as well as illustrating the astonishing beauty of Chinese porcelain, known as ‘white gold’ and celebrating vibrant Indian textiles created for export around the world.

This exhibition includes 250 outstanding and rarely-seen examples of ceramics, decorative arts, furniture, maps, metalware, paintings, prints and textiles from public and private collections in Australia, India, Portugal, Singapore and the United States.
