Falnama: The Book of Omens (2009) The first exhibition devoted to fortune-telling manuscripts known as the Falnama, Falnama: The Book of Omens shed new light on their artistic, cultural, and religious significance.


The Galleries are renowned for developing dynamic exhibitions that explore the artistic traditions of Asian and American art, encourage cultural appreciation and understanding, and offer new knowledge and fresh perspectives. Our goal is to challenge visitors to think about Asian art and culture as a dynamic process, one that is in dialogue with the past and influenced by the present. From explorations of enduring traditional forms to the forefront of new media and digital technology, your donation will support the development of groundbreaking exhibitions of the highest artistic and cultural significance.
