Exhibition and Catalogue (La Caixa), 2007


One of the outcomes proposed by the project team in their AHRC application was an international exhibition and catalogue of temple sculpture. This was organised by John Guy (then Victoria and Albert Museum, London, now Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York) in collaboration with Dr Michael Willis (British Museum and AHRC project partner).

The exhibition was held at Caixa Forum, Barcelona, in Autumn 2007. The catalogue was published as L'Escultura en els Temples Indis. L'Art de Devocio, (Barcelona, 2007, with further edition in Castiliano).

The catalogue included contributions by Michael Willis and Adam Hardy. The aim of the exhibition was to present some of the research findings to a wider international audience.

The exhibition did not travel beyond Spain, but an abbreviated version will go to the Shanghai Museum, China, in 2010 and from there to further venues in Asia (locations still under discussion).
