Freer and Sackler Galleries » Event Series » Yoga: The Art of Transformation

Yoga: The Art of Transformation explores yoga’s goals, its means of transforming body and consciousness, its philosophical foundations, and the roles that yogis and yoginis have played in Indian society over 2,000 years. The first exhibition to present this leitmotif of Indian visual culture, Yoga includes more than 120 works dating from the 3rd to the early 20th century. Temple sculptures, devotional icons, illustrated manuscripts, and court paintings—as well as colonial and early modern photographs, books, and films—illuminate yoga’s central tenets and its obscured histories.
