Transcendent Deities of India
Transcendent Deities of India: The Everyday Occurrence of the Divine explores modern and contemporary interpretations of Hindu gods and goddesses by artists Raja Ravi Varma, Manjari Sharma, and Abhishek Singh. The exhibit will be on display in Clough Commons on Tuesday, January 16 from 11 A.M. - 4 P.M.
Images of gods and goddesses are an integral part of Hindu religious practice, inspiring worshippers and artists alike. Through more than 70 prints, photographs, graphic art, paintings, and illustrations, Varma, Sharma, and Singh position Hindu gods and goddesses within viewers’ frame of reference, ensuring their seamless applicability in new eras.
