Lives of the Cosmos: Celestial Visions along the Silk Road

Planning of a traveling exhibition on the cave-temples at Dunhuang.

UC Berkeley’s P.Y. and Kinmay W. Tang Center for Silk Road Studies along with partners from the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and the Dunhuang Academy in China propose an exhibition project that utilizes current research on materials from the Buddhist cave-temples at Dunhuang to reveal how this outpost in the Gobi Desert, situated at the eastern convergence of the Central Asian Silk Roads, emerged simultaneously as a site famed for visionary experiences and as a major commercial, intellectual, and artistic hub. The exhibition will include original artifacts, replica caves, and virtual reality caves.
