Exhibition Walk-through: “Jain Embroidered Shrine Hangings”
Join us for a walk-through of Visualizing Devotion: Jain Embroidered Shrine Hangings, with co-curator Syona Puliady.
This exhibition highlights Jain devotional textiles (chhod patas) from the Ronald and Maxine Linde Collection, promised gifts to UCLA. Eye-catching panels of velvet and sateen cloth lavishly embroidered with gold and silver-gilt thread, chhoda depict stories from Jain mythology, influential spiritual teachers, sacred sites, ritual traditions, and other religious subjects. In addition to objects from the Linde Collection, which were acquired in the western Indian states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra, the installation includes photographs documenting the use of chhoda in personal and public shrines by Jain adherents in Southern California.
Exhibition Walk-through: Spend time in our galleries and enjoy that particular alchemy of art, people, and ideas mixing together in the physical space of the museum.
Parking available in UCLA Lot 4, 198 Westwood Plaza, directly off Sunset Blvd; $3/hr or max $14/day. Rideshare drop-off at 305 Royce Dr.
