Interpretations of Hell in Ancient and Contemporary Asian Art

Comparative Hell opening in Spring 2019, will be an international loan exhibition of approximately one hundred ancient and contemporary artworks devoted to the rich artistic production inspired by the notion of Hell in Asia. The planning grant for Comparative Hell will be used to support an advisory workshop made up of curators, humanities scholars, public programmers, and museum educators with the goal to develop a preliminary plan for the format and content of the exhibition, catalog, related programming, online presence, and other educational materials. The grant will enable travel to facilitate consultation with experts, research, and obtaining loans for the exhibition.
