In conjunction with the 10th Annual Schoenberg Symposium November 2-4 of the same theme, Intertwined Worlds explores pre-modern religious traditions of South and Southeast Asia including Jainism, Buddhism, and Hinduism as well as their influence, exchange, and integration with neighboring geographies and peoples (including their reception within Islamic and Sikh communities).

Early photographs of the Holy Land taken from the mid-nineteenth to the early-twentieth centuries by western photographers are famous for their timeless depictions of unpopulated landscapes and religious sites. This exhibition focuses on the different ways in which the Holy Land's inhabitants appear in these photographs and seeks to reclaim them as subjects in their own right, not merely as props in someone else's story. These images yield complicated realms of vision, imagination, artistic expression, and documentation and move from the studio to the dynamic activities of street life. For more information
