Dunhuang: Song of Living Beings
Editor's Description
The Dunhuang grottoes are the stuff of legends: created between the 4th and 14th centuries, the 1,680-meters long carvings are utterly exquisite. An important stop on the ancient Silk Road, Dunhuang was of strategic importance in connecting China and the West. It's most significant legacy, though, is its art. What with being national treasures and all, not to mention tricky to open up to the masses, your chances of seeing 'em in the flesh are slim. Himalayas Art Museum has the next best thing: a handful of historical relics presented alongside replicas of the caves and their paintings. Shown in a kind of dialogue, they'll be displated alongside contemporary works by Li Lei, Ding Yi, Qiu Zhijie, Li Yongzheng, and Nam June Paik. Highlights include those eight replica caves, 11 copies of painted stucco sculptures, and loads of Dunhuang Art Institute-approved replicas of silk paintings, murals and more. Most of the actual caves are no longer open to the public, so you should definitely go see.
