Catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition 'Traces of Words: Art and Calligraphy from Asia' held at the Museum of Anthropology at University of British Columbia from May to October, 2017.
'Traces of Words: Art and Calligraphy from Asia features a stunning selection of works representing a diverse array of cultures, eras, and media, including Sumerian cuneiform inscriptions, Qur'anic manuscripts, Chinese calligraphy, graffti art from Afghanistan, and contemporary artworks using Japanese calligraphy and Tibetan or Thai scripts. Through different materials—from paper to silk, woodblock to projected screen—these works in turn evoke the ephemeral and the eternal.' - excerpted from the front page
