Divine Bodies

Asian Art Museum

The exhibition is organized into thematic sections that encourage us to look at objects not only as artworks but also as devotional images and ask, "How can we see the human in the divine and the divine in the human?"

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Divine Bodies :

Divine Bodies juxtaposes historical paintings and sculptures from Hindu and Buddhist traditions with contemporary photography and media to consider the divine. Works such as David and Hi-Jin Hodge’s video work “Impermanence,” featuring more than 100 interviewees discussing the meaning of life, are situated alongside traditional works from China, Indonesia, India, Thailand and Pakistan.
