Museums & Exhibitions

Check out these museum exhibitions and special showings!

Calendar
07/01/2018 - Arts Of South And Southeast Asia
The San Diego Museum of Art presents Arts of South and Southeast Asia.

Pieces in the exhibit range in date from the first to the nineteenth century AD. The earliest works are mostly religious, relating to the ritual practices of Buddhism, Jainism, and Hinduism. Although each religion has a distinct set of gods and divinities, all three based the iconography of these figures on the human form.

During a series of invasions and migrations in the eleventh century, people from Central Asia moved into Pakistan and northern India. They brought India a new literary language, Persian, and Islam. By the end of the fifteenth century, European traders and missionaries began arriving by sea. They, in addition to goods, also brought oil paintings and engravings. These cultural influences thrived alongside traditions stemming from the region's native languages, literatures, and religions, which continue to flourish.

We will feature sections of Krenek's profound "Lamentations," written for the fallen city of Vienna, and Britten's 1975 composition, "Sacred & Profane," a collection of eight lyrics based on medieval English poems. You will also hear a reading of a set of lyrics that Rilke wrote specifically for Krenek.
