The texts and images on the back of Tibetan art objects reveal clues to their meaning, function, and historical context. For the first time ever both sides of a select group of scroll paintings (thangkas), sculptures, and initiation cards will be explored in detail. Chosen for the beauty, exceptional content, and complexity of their backs, these works of art dating from the 13th to the 19th century illuminate the many uses of the other side in Tibetan culture.

Venue Description: The Rubin Museum of Art holds one of the world's most important collections of Himalayan art and is the only museum in NYC dedicated to works from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Tibet, western China, Myanmar, and Mongolia. The museum runs an active set of programs for the general public that help illuminate themes inherent in its exhibitions, including the Naked Soul live concert series.
