The Other Woman: Portrayals in Asian Art

March 11, 2011-June 21, 2011
Location: Ticho House
Curator: Miriam Malachi
The Other Woman showcases about 30 works of art in various mediums, depicting women and goddesses, and giving us insight into cultural perceptions of beauty during a range of historical periods in China, Japan, and India. In these cultures, the “beautiful woman” is not the figure of the wife, who, if portrayed at all, is shown as a chaste figure, but rather the “other woman" – the concubine, courtesan, or goddess. The exhibition explores social attitudes toward the “other woman,” who, while not recognized in the formal social structure, was nonetheless an integral part of society.
