Feeding a Thousand Souls

April 27, 2019 | 10:30am-12:30pm
The San Diego Museum of Art Boardroom

Feeding A Thousand Souls is an exploration of the KOLAM, a women’s ritual art performed daily by thousands in Tamil Nadu, South India. This lecture by Dr. Vijaya Nagarajan will traverse the multiple fields of knowledge that a traditional ritual art form is embedded within: ritual, design, mathematics, poetics, philosophy, and ecology. It is a rich example of how oral knowledge traditions contain multitudes of ways of being.
