The art, rituals, and literature inspired by the divine power of mountains inspire contemplation about the relationship between humanity and the natural world. In this panel, part of the annual conference for the New School's India China Institute, curators Jorrit Britschgi, Elena Pakhoutova, Karl Debreczeny, and Beth Citron will discuss interpretations of sacred mountains and their associations with sacred places represented in the art of diverse cultures of the Himalayan region and beyond. Making pilgrimages to pay respects to the gods of the mountains, listening to the will of the gods, and taming or appeasing them, are common themes in these Himalayan artworks, which will be discussed at the roundtable. We invite the audience to engage in discussion with the panelists and afterwards, discover representations of sacred landscapes and sacred spaces in our galleries. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=217218 The Rubin Museum of Art The Rubin Museum of Art
