Exhibition Review: Buddhist Sculpture from China: Selections from the Xi’an Beilin Museum, Fifth through Ninth Centuries, China Institute Gallery, New York City (2007)
A. F. Howard, Rob Linrothe, and Amy McNair, 89

Excerpt: “Mixing questions of popular worship with ideas about the personal, dynastic, and monastic use of Buddhist sculpture, the exhibition provided a compelling opportunity to rethink our notions of some of the early Chinese Buddhist movements, patronage systems, and visual styles…. This review essay focuses on the Catalogue as the most enduring record of the exhibition. Also, inspired by the project as a whole, we offer some broader comments relevant to the state of the field, specifically to the handling of questions of provenance and the employment of Buddhological methods of inquiry.”
