Painting Is My Everything: Art from India’s Mithila Region is an original exhibition at the Asian Art Museum featuring 30 large- scale contemporary works on paper from Bihar state, the subcontinent’s rural northeast. This will be the first major exhibition in more than a decade to explore how a previously private, age-old tradition of women’s domestic decoration has, since the 1960s, become a vibrant arts movement with a surprising social impact. A number of the Mithila paintings on view are newly acquired by the Asian Art Museum and have never been on display before.
