Curators Circles: Art of South Asia and the Middle East

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. Delve into the visual traditions of South Asia and the Middle East, exploring the ways they articulate identity, faith, authority, and cultural difference, through enriching programs with renowned guest experts and vibrant conversation with fellow enthusiasts. Funding in previous years has supported areas such as curatorial research and object photography.

Annual membership is $1,500.*
