The objective of our exhibition is to inform people about the interrelationship between ritual practices and art across a myriad of cultures. Despite the culture or origin of the art in countries such as: Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Japan, as well as many others, their artwork maintained similar continuities. We want our audience to understand the emphasis on rituals and traditions within these cultures, that despite their geographic location and if they communicated or not, all these cultures utilized art and architecture as a source of reverence. We can infer through their portrayal of ritual practices through different forms of art and architecture, that each culture formed and maintained their own unique identity; furthermore, we can theorize what each culture valued.
