Indian exhibitions in the southeast

Email
April 2011
Indian exhibitions in the southeast It’s no longer uncommon to see Indian exhibitions in the museums of this region. Think of Emory’s Michael Carlos Museum, which has showcased Indian art and jewelry in recent years. And then there is Oglethorpe University, whose ongoing exhibition of 50 works from India’s leading contemporary artists will end on May 15th this year.

This cultural bonanza is not limited to Atlanta. One can sometimes find similar offerings in other Southeastern cities. Take Nashville. Its Frist Center for the Visual Arts brought together 170 sculptures, paintings, textiles and ritual objects of the Indian subcontinent for an exhibition titled “Vishnu: Hinduism’s Blue-Skinned Savior.” This rare display will end on May 29, 2011. There are statues of Vishnu from the 4th, 5th and 12th centuries, along with many other items from later centuries, right up to the 20th century.

“[The exhibition] uses a variety of exquisite and expressive objects to show how the deity’s many characteristics knit together to create a rich perception of the divine,” noted Dr. Joan Cummins, the curator. “We hope that anyone who has wondered about the figure of Vishnu and his role in Hinduism will not only find answers to their questions, but also be intrigued and want to learn more.”
