Behind the Scenes: Creating The Art of Transformation

Sunday, June 22, 2014, 2:00 p.m.
Recital Hall

Debra Diamond, curator of Yoga: The Art of Transformation, shares the process of creating the first major study on the visual culture of yoga. Diamond charts the project from its initial concept and research through interdisciplinary collaborations with scholars, yoga practitioners, and exhibition designers. Focusing on masterworks on view at The Cleveland Museum of Art, her talk illuminates how visual culture can convey embodied transformations and reveal yoga’s diverse and profound manifestations in history.

Free, no reservations required.

Yoga: The Art of Transformation is organized by the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution with support from the Friends of the Freer and Sackler Galleries, the Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne, and the Ebrahimi Family Foundation.
