Winter 2015 Opening Day Lecture

Watch the lecture from the Block Museum’s Winter 2015 Opening Day Celebration.

Robert Linrothe, Northwestern art history faculty member and curator of the exhibition, provides an overview of “Collecting Paradise: Buddhist Art of Kashmir and Its Legacies.” Linrothe addresses two sets of themes underpinning the exhibition — travel, trade and artistic exchange across the Himalayas between the 7th and 17th centuries; and how and why works like those in the exhibition have been collected by Himalayan Buddhists and by Westerners, and the consequences of their respective approaches.

The presentation is followed by a conversation between Linrothe and Sonya Rhie Quintanilla, the George P. Bickford Curator of Indian and Southeast Asian Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
