“Gateway to Himalayan Art” at the Harn Museum of Art

A traveling exhibition that introduces the main forms, concepts, meanings, and traditions of Himalayan art and cultures organized by the Rubin Museum of Art, New York will be on view through July 28 at the Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida in Gainesville. “Gateway to Himalayan Art,” features 110 objects from the Rubin Museum’s collection as well as multimedia elements—audio, videos, essays, maps, and more.

“The Harn is the only Southeastern US venue for the exhibition,” says Harn Museum of Art Director Lee Anne Chesterfield. “We are excited to bring the exhibition and its extensive learning opportunities not only to our local and academic audiences, but to be a draw for new visitors within Florida and those who live beyond the state.”

“Gateway to Himalayan Art,” which is modeled on the Rubin Museum of Art’s cornerstone exhibition of the same name, invites visitors to engage with the art and cultures of the greater Himalayan region—Indian, Nepalese, Bhutanese, Tibetan—and the interrelated Mongolian and Chinese traditions. Much of Himalayan art is informed by Buddhist, Hindu, and indigenous religions, and images play a prominent role in cultural practices.
