The Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) is proud to present Imagine, South Asia, an action-packed weekend celebrating South Asian culture and heritage on February 6 and 7.
Part of PEM’s Present Tense Initiative, this special weekend celebrates the eight nations and more than 5,000 years of human history that comprise South Asia. The region’s rich and diverse artistic heritage will be explored through the unveiling of an award-winning contemporary installation by Anila Agha, a writing workshop with National Book Award finalist Carla Power, the U.S. premiere of the BBC documentary Treasures of the Indus and a dance party with renowned London DJ Ben “the Bee” Taylor and the UK arts collective House of Honey.
You won't want to miss Intersections (on view February 6 - July 10), which was included in 90.9 WBUR The Artery's thirteen art exhibits to see this winter!
