Asia Society Texas Center will present a series of vibrant photographs by Brooklyn-based Indian contemporary artist Manjari Sharma and modern chromolithographs produced by the Raja Ravi Varma Press in an exhibition entitled “Transcendent Deities of India: The Everyday Occurrence of the Divine,” on view May 2 through September 14, 2014. This is the first time these artists’ works have been presented together in Texas.

The exhibition of nearly 60 images will be on view in the Louisa Stude Sarofim Gallery at the Texas Center and is funded in part by a grant from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.

“Transcendent Deities of India” features Hindu gods and goddesses depicted in the less familiar formats of photography and chromolithography which demonstrates their ongoing relevance to more recent artists who utilized the technology of their eras,” said Bridget Bray, director of exhibitions, Asia Society Texas Center.
