In an age of global trade and mass migration, the arts and cultures of South Asia and the Middle East are of international relevance. To understand the contemporary forms these cultures take, we must also engage with the pre-modern. Through the lens of the MFA’s world-class collections, we delve into the visual traditions of South Asia and the Middle East, exploring the ways they articulate identity, faith, authority, and cultural difference. Sessions are enriched by the company of guest experts, music, and vibrant conversation.
Membership contributions from Curators Circles: Art of South Asia and the Middle East participants directly sustain the Art of Asia department by providing funding for essential work that includes travel, research, and acquisitions.
