This May/June 2021 issue features the Aga Khan Museum. Founded in 2014, the museum is housed in a building designed by the Pritzker Prize–winning architect Fumihiko Maki and is dedicated to the presentation of the art of Muslim civilisations from antiquity to contemporary times.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has recently acquired a collection of bamboo wrist rests and folding fans by Jin Xiya (1890–1979), the only group in a public museum outside of China. As one of the finest bamboo artists in 20th century China, Jin commanded a wide spectrum of carving styles. ‘Japan: A History of Style’ opened this spring and includes recently acquired works that shows the museum’s commitment to broadening the stories that objects can tell about Japanese art.
We bring readers two articles on the art of the Himalayas, a region of inexhaustible treasures, which build upon articles from past issues of Orientations.
