Featuring more than 25 works from the Museum’s collection, this installation celebrates music through the arts of East and South Asia.  Introducing string, percussion and wind instruments not found in Western traditions—both the actual musical instruments and images of their sounding will be featured. Prints, paintings, ivories and lacquer works from China, India, Japan, Korea, Nepal and Tibet reveal disparate dynamic melodic traditions. These visuals will be enhanced by audio and video multimedia—a feast for the eyes and ears.

This installation is part of the Museum’s ongoing conservation efforts which require the rotation of fragile objects within its galleries. Works within Asian Art, The Musical can be found throughout the Asian galleries—China, Japan, Korea, Nepal and Tibet—and can be identified by a unique text label.
