Asian Art Museum Lecture: Expressions of Gender in Asian Art
When we see people one of the first things we notice is gender. We tend to categorize people as male or female. But what if the characteristics we used to categorize were fluid, and not rigidly defined? What if there were no gender distinctions? Non-binary and gender fluid depictions have existed in Asian art for thousands of years. The belief in non-duality contributes to these purposely ambivalent portrayals. Explore some of the fascinating ways various Asian cultures have represented people and deities as male, female, and non-binary.
