Dancing in Circles in the Arts of India and Its Neighbors
November 22, 2019 | 7–8 pm |
Forrest McGill, Wattis Senior Curator of South and Southeast Asian Art, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco
Dance is regarded as one of the most important subjects in the visual arts of India and neighboring countries. This talk will focus on depictions of the circle dances performed by Buddhist and Hindu gods and deities, and how dance can convey creative energy and eroticism, the doom-laden power of destruction, and the prospect of transcendence.
Presented in partnership with East Asian Studies, Washington University in St. Louis.
