Comparative Hell: Asian Religious Traditions and Depictions of the Afterlife

Implementation of a traveling exhibition of Asian artworks inspired by religious and cultural beliefs about Hell.

Asia Society seeks an Implementation Grant in the amount of $400,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to support “Comparative Hell,” a travelling, international loan exhibition that is scheduled to open at Asia Society Museum in New York, NY in September 2020, and at Asia Society Texas Center in Houston, TX in spring 2021. Developed with major Planning Grant support from the NEH, “Comparative Hell” will be a cross-cultural presentation of approximately seventy artworks inspired by notions of hell, including sacred, didactic narrative paintings and sculptures spanning the eighth to twenty-first centuries, from the Asian religious traditions of Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Islam. NEH support will enable Asia Society to install the exhibition; publish a scholarly exhibition catalogue; develop didactics, educational resources, and an interactive exhibition website; and present a scholarly symposium and series of complementary public programs.
