Featuring almost fifty objects from the Rubin Museum's premier collection of Nepalese art and select loans, "Nepalese Seasons: Rain and Ritual" illustrates the enduring manifestation of rituals, agrarian festivals, and the natural environment in art of Nepal's Kathmandu Valley. This is the first exhibition connecting well-known deities represented in Nepalese art to rituals and festivals surrounding the rainy season, or monsoon, and highlighting the importance of the seasons to the culture and everyday life of the Nepalese people.
