Debra Diamond, curator of Yoga: The Art of Transformation, shares the process of creating the first major study on the visual culture of yoga. Diamond charts the project from its initial concept and research through interdisciplinary collaborations with scholars, yoga practitioners and exhibition designers. Focusing on masterworks on view at Asian Art Museum, her talk illuminates how visual culture can convey embodied transformations and reveal yoga’s diverse and profound manifestations in history.
After her talk, Debra Diamond will be signing exhibition catalogs in North Court, outside of the museum store.
