Exhibition: Christ in India, Rietberg Museum, Zürich, until March 22, 2015

Christ in India

Christian motifs are very much the exception in Indian painting. This makes them all the more striking as evidence of Indo-European exchange.

 

The Jesuit delegation that journeyed to the court of Emperor Akbar in 1580 presented the Mughal ruler with an illustrated Bible. Following the usual trade routes, European prints and paintings also found their way to India and there met with great interest among local artists.  

 

The exhibition will take place at the Rietberg Museum in Zürich, Switzerland, until March 22, 2015.

On the Table. Ai Weiwei offers a comprehensive view of the artist's life and work through the display of a variety of artworks and materials, set up to match the scale of La Virreina Image Centre.

 

The exhibition aims to give an idea of the scope of Ai Weiwei's artistic career, from his beginnings in 1980s New York to his present-day status as the best-known and most influential Chinese artist in the world. Work by this media-savvy activist calling for greater freedom in China can now be found in leading contemporary art museums and collections worldwide.
