The Peaceful Liberators: Jain Art from India

The Peaceful Liberators: Jain Art from India is the most comprehensive presentation to date of the artwork emerging from the Jain religion. The Jains, despite their rigorous ideal of nonattachnient to the physical world, have produced a cultural heritage paradoxically regal in its imaginative splendor and its physical realization. The approximately 150 works in this exhibition, spanning nearly two millennia and displaying an astonishing variety of modes and styles, reveal the presence of a major artistic tradition unfortunately little known in the West. We are pleased to help remedy that situation by coordinating this comprehensive exhibition.
