Damien Hirst and Contemporary Art

Hunter Theatre Cameron St, Broadmeadow, New South Wales, Australia

And yet in his home country he is often seen as a practical joker, pulling the wool over the eyes of the public, and not making proper art at all.

Ancient Southeast Asia: from Borobudur to Angkor

Hunter Theatre Cameron St, Broadmeadow, New South Wales, Australia

Each of the major kingdoms of Southeast Asia evolved distinctive styles of temple building, sculpture and relief carving, from the vast cities of Pagan to monumental Angkor. The evolution of ancient Javanese art shows how styles developed from the Indian Gupta influences visible in Borobudur and Prambanan of Central Java, and transformed into the more Balinese-style temples of East Java.
