About the exhibition:

This exhibition features posters created by both men and women worldwide to celebrate and acknowledge the vital role that all citizens play in protecting and promoting human rights while challenging gender inequality and stereotypes, advancing reproductive and sexual rights, protecting women and girls against brutality, and promoting women’s empowerment, education, and participation in society. The posters argue for the empowerment of women, the achievement of equality between women and men, and the elimination of discrimination against women and girls.

Organized and curated by Elizabeth Resnick, Professor Emerita, Graphic Design, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Boston. Co-curated by Fairfield University faculty Rachelle Brunn-Bevel, PhD, Elizabeth Hohl, PhD, Johanna Garvey, PhD, and Anna Lawrence, PhD in collaboration with museum staff.

YUAG: Virtual Program, E-Lecture, Buddhas, Guardians, and Guides: How to Read Tibetan Paintings @ Yale University Art Gallery
Feb 8 @ 12:30 pm

Although known as early as the 7th century, there is little visual evidence for Buddhist practice in Tibet until the 11th when paintings and sculptures illustrate an astonishing array of enlightened beings such as buddhas and bodhisattvas, guardians and guides. After introducing the primary types of deities featured in Tibetan practices, Denise Patry Leidy, the Ruth and Bruce Dayton Curator of Asian Art, highlights a newly acquired, and spectacular, 16th-century Tibetan mandala focused on the protective deity Sitatapatra (White Parasol), a guardian against malign supernatural forces. Recently conserved and on view for the first time, this mandala was produced in Ngor Monastery in central Tibet, famed for its painting workshops. It was commissioned by one of the abbots of this establishment in honor of an earlier teacher. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.

Closed captions will be available in English.
