UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History
Museum admission is free. Some of the exhibit can also be viewed online.
Los Angeles museum-goers at last have an ongoing opportunity to enjoy one of our nation’s most important collections of art from Africa, Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas in Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives, which will feature approximately 250 of the finest objects from the Fowler’s collections in a long-term exhibition that celebrates the richness of world arts and considers the roles these works of art play in peoples’ lives.
Although they are scattered throughout the exhibit, there are a number of artifacts from Southeast Asia (Burma, Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia) including ancestor figures, puppets, masks, and other sculptures. There is also a five-minutes film on Indonesia: “Sisilia Sii, Weaver” which focuses on ikat weaving techniques on the island of Flores.
