There’s a new exciting exhibit at the Beach Museum of Art in Manhattan. The must-see installation opens to the public today. Visitors can explore ancient art of India through a captivating, immersive multimedia installation. Museum Curator Aileen June Wang explains:
The Project’s Producer Rosey Guthrie and Director David Lebrun aligned and sequenced high-resolution photographs of sculptures from Southern India.
The development and interrelationship of artistic symbols and themes from ancient cultures is displayed by use of intricate animation, and enhanced by music. Wang says the experience is unlike a typical museum visit.
The project features images of ancient statues, dating back to the 9th century. Lebrun says, “It’s like a magical museum where the objects come to life in the dark.”
He says both young children and adults are mesmerized by the exhibit. Reanimating Ancient Art of India runs through May 27, 2023. For more information and museum hours, go to: beach.k-state.edu
