7:00 p.m. Lecture | 8:00 p.m. Film
Satyaijt Ray (1921-1992) was a master of Indian cinema and his work continues to be studied and discovered by audiences around the world. The Music Room, also known by its original title Jalsaghar, follows an aristocrat's weakening grip on power and the destruction of his personal and public life during a radical shift in Indian society when the feudal system was outlawed. Set in West Bengal, the film's protagonist remains committed to tradition, pride, and above all, organizing concerts of beautiful Indian music in his home.
Before the film, Marika Sardar, Ph.D., Associate Curator for Southern Asian and Islamic Art, will discuss the Edwin Binney 3rd collection of Indian miniature paintings. Learn about the collector Edwin Binney 3rd, who donated over 1400 paintings to The San Diego Museum of Art, the growth of the Indian art market in the 20th century, and the stories and techniques behind these paintings displayed in the Museum's South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Persian art galleries.
