How to Make the Universe Right: Review

The Museum’s upcoming opening of winter exhibitions features a show of scrolls and ceremonial objects of the Yao people and other groups from Vietnam and Southern China. This rich tradition of Shamanic practice brings together Daoist and Buddhist deities, Confucian ancestor worship, and Animism. This collection represents ancient Asian mountain cultures dating back 2000 years and the means they used to guide peoples’ spiritual well-being to “make the universe right.”

This exhibition was reviewed by Charles Donelan from the Santa Barbara Independent. A link to the article can be found below. Develop your own perspective on the Art of the Shaman in Vietnam and Southern China by visiting the AD&A Museum between January 17 and May 1, 2015. The museum is open Wednesday – Sunday, Noon – 5 pm. Admission is free.
