Drawn primarily from the Met’s holdings in this area, this exhibition explores how premodern artists in China visualised divinity in remarkably fluid ways. Paintings, prints and sculptures bring together deities from Buddhist, Taoist and other pantheons in a manner that reflects the exchange of ideas across boundaries of faith, culture and politics in this era. Find out more from the Met’s website. [More]
