I have arranged this a little early for a Saturday morning but if people want to arrive a bit later than the proposed time, that's fine - I have to leave around 1pm, hence aiming for 11am. This exhibition ends in a few weeks, so thought it would be good to try and see it before it closes - it's going to be published as a big, lavish coffee table book but I've been told the exhibition is incredibly beautiful so it will probably be best experienced here (other than flying to Amritsar that is).
‘The Golden Temple of Amritsar’ exhibition promises to be a cutting-edge, world-class show that will leave an estimated 20,000 visitors with a lasting appreciation for Sikh cultural heritage.
* Venue: Brunei GalleryRoom * Address: Brunei Gallery, SOAS, University of London, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, London, WC1H 0XG.
* Date: 14 July 2011 to 25 September 2011
Visitors to the exhibition will learn about the Golden Temple’s history and devotees, and be able to experience its awe-inspiring beauty and artistry in a way that has never been presented before. The exhibition will also celebrate a bygone era when the Sikh nation was amongst the most powerful in Asia, and its arts and culture were at their height.
