Performance outcome by students of the Apsara Dance workshop
This exhibition is an outcome of the academy-wide project jointly managed and nurtured by the Institute of Southeast Asian Arts and the academic schools in NAFA. This unique collaboration incorporates relevant regional principals conducting workshops and a rollout of lectures and activities, as well as an overseas on location trip that collectively provide resource and inspirations for those involved. The manifestation of the programming has been critically integrated into the existing curriculum and modules to expand the academic investigations of conventional disciplines into the realm of Southeast Asian art and art history. With over 120 students and faculty members participating, this project puts the UNESCO site of Angkor Wat on an unprecedented scale as subject matter and creative stimulus.
