The Curators offer a special preview of this exhibition that will be at the Asian from February 21-May 25, 2014. Through masterworks of 1,000 years of Indian sculpture and paintings, the exhibition explores yoga’s goals; its Hindu, as well as Buddhist, Jain, and Sufi manifestations; its means of transforming body and consciousness; and its profound philosophical foundations. It is the first exhibition to present this leitmotif of Indian visual culture and examine the roles of yogis and yoginis played in Indian society. It will feature the world’s first illustrated manual of yoga postures.

Qamar Adamjee is Associate Curator of South Asian Art at the Asian Art Museum. Jeff Durham is Associate Curator of Himalayan Art at the Asian Art Museum.
