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. Through the lens of the MFA’s world-class collections, delve into the visual traditions of South Asia and the Middle East, exploring the ways they articulate identity, faith, authority, and cultural difference. Programs are enriched by guest experts, music, and vibrant conversation.

Contributions from every Curators Circles membership provide vital operating funds for the respective departments and curators.
