Yoga: The Art of Transformation
In the March 6 issue, William Dalrymple writes, “Yoga: The Art of Transformation explores the visual culture of yoga in all its rich variety, aiming, according to its curator Debra Diamond, to show ‘yoga’s rich, protean diversity—its varied meanings for both practitioners and those who encountered and interacted with them—over the last 2,500 years.’ For as the exhibition makes clear, while the use of meditation, posture, and breathing techniques has been widespread in India since remote antiquity, yoga was never a unified construct and has clearly meant quite different things at different times to different people, whether Jain, Buddhist, Sufi, or Hindu.”
The exhibition is at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. For more information, please visit the Museum’s website.
