Painting Is My Everything

Asian Art Museum

Painting Is My Everything: Art from India's Mithila Region. This original exhibition at the Asian Art Museum features 30 large-scale contemporary works on paper from Bihar state, the subcontinent's rural northeast. This will be the first major exhibition in more than a decade to explore how a previously private, age-old tradition of women's domestic decoration has, since the 1960s, become a vibrant arts movement with a surprising social impact.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Painting Is My Everything :

This major museum exhibition considers the expansive influence of the age-old painting traditions of provincial India’s Mithila Region, located in the subcontinent’s rural northeast, and how they contributed to the economic vitality of a region and a population. More than 30 large-scale works on paper are featured in this exhibition of community-generated works.
