Postponed: Across the Threshold of India: Art, Women, and Culture

In honoring Sarasvati, Hindu goddess of the arts and knowledge, one practice is to sanctify the space between physical and spiritual existence by the creation of evanescent drawings, which are typically made of rice flour carefully sprinkled on the ground in transitional spaces to create intricate patterns. Martha Strawn, visual ecologist and photographer, documents and examines the practice of making these “threshold drawings” (kolam or rangoli) through her photographs.

Other exhibits will also be included, such as sari and other objects taken from the Gregg Museum of Art & Design’s permanent holdings.
