Mia’s Reinstalled Himalayan, South, and Southeast Asian Art Galleries
With the redesign of three of its gallery spaces, and a reinstallation overseen by curator Pujan Gandhi, the Minneapolis Institute of Art is showing its outstanding collections of Asian art to even greater advantage. The South Asian galleries include works from the medieval period to the present – highlights include a Sri Lankan commemorative dish depicting the fall of the Kingdom of Kandy, from around 1815. Works in the Himalayan galleries reveal the links between the mountainous region and greater Asia, while the Southeast Asian galleries explore how the artistic identity of Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam and other nations in the region was shaped by its long history of maritime trade.
