"Spanning centuries of multicultural creativity, this exhibition is the kind of art experience that might restore your faith in the sad old human comedy. How nice that the installation is on long-term view." -The New York Times, Oct. 1, 2006
Los Angeles museum-goers at last have an ongoing opportunity to enjoy one of our nation’s most important collections of art from Africa, Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas in Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives, which features approximately 250 of the finest objects from the Fowler’s collections in a long-term exhibition that celebrates the richness of world arts and considers the roles these works of art play in peoples’ lives.
A gallery within the gallery, entitled Fowler in Focus, is dedicated to a rotating installation of new acquisitions, special collections, and particular artistic genres. The opening Fowler in Focus exhibition, Flames of Devotion: Oil Lamps from South and Southeast Asia, is a selection of approximately fifty remarkable metal lamps and incense burners.
Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives is made possible by lead gifts from various sponsors.
