The Asian Civilisations Museum invites you to an engaging session of ACM Conversations on "Hidden Hybridity: Analysing Local and Foreign Materials on a Minangkabau Headdress," scheduled for March 28 at the Ngee Ann Auditorium. This insightful talk delves into the intricate craftsmanship and cultural significance of a Minangkabau headdress, a symbol of identity for the Minangkabau from West Sumatra.

In this session, experts in conservation and curation will come together to present an integrated analysis of the headdress, highlighting its construction and the diverse materials used. Attendees will learn about the unique combination of local and imported elements, including gold, natural resin, and textiles from Europe and possibly India, that contribute to the headdress's aesthetic and cultural value.

This event is free, but registration is necessary to ensure a place. Interested attendees are required to register with a $10 refundable deposit at Peatix
