A San Francisco Museum Puts Dance On Display With “Beyond Bollywood”

April 7, 2023

This spring, San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum presents “Beyond Bollywood: 2000 Years of Dance in Art,” a multi­media extravaganza of Himalayan, South Asian and Southeast Asian artwork featuring dance. The exhibition, which opened March 31, showcases sculpture, painting, textiles, jewelry, photographs, music and video installations that illus­trate the rich history of dance in the regions.

On select days, museumgoers can also enjoy live performances: Bay Area dance artists, such as Antoine Hunter/Urban Jazz Dance Company, kathak dance troupe Noorani Dance and Cambodian dance artist Charya Burt, perform through biweekly pop-up performances inside the galleries, a monthly series of longer programs in Samsung Hall and family fun days.

“Beyond Bollywood” runs through July 10.
