Kailash Cartographies – “The Most New School Exhibit Ever”


The India China Institute is very excited to share this Facebook Live event video featuring our Kailash Cartographies exhibition at The New school. Artists Sreshta Rit Premnath (exhibit co-organizer, artist and Parsons Fine Arts faculty) and Nitin Sawhney (artist and Media Studies professor) take viewers on an exhibition walkthrough with The New School social media team.

Kailash Cartographies is an exhibition of artists from India, China, Nepal, and the US exploring conceptions of sacred geography, particularly in the Himalayas.  Devotees encounter the sacred through ritual, art, and acts of pilgrimage and circumambulation of mountains and temples.  The artists in the exhibition pose questions about the nature of both the sacred and the secular by drawing on the points of connection with landscapes and lived worlds.

The show runs from March 13-April 2. More details about the exhibit available here.

A closing reception and faculty talk will take place on Thursday, March 30th from 5-7pm.

Enjoy the video!
