    Over the course of the exhibition, in a succession of three-week-long installations, nine Luhring Augustine artists will be paired with the front façade of a 19th century Indian pleasure pavilion. Inviting conversations ranging from concept and intent, form and function, to many others, the juxtapositions will simultaneously illuminate the contemporary aspects of the pavilion and the timeless interests of the contemporary artists.

    While the naturalism of the carved floral motifs on the pavilion reflects the impact of European art, these motifs are also related to the Indian tradition, in which the lotus, for example, is always considered an auspicious flower. Its appearance in the pavilion’s decoration would have imbued the building and its inhabitants with magical protection. From the Islamic point of view, as expressed in the art of the Persianate world, the floral motifs would have served as a reminder that Paradise is always conceived as a garden.

    – George Michell, architectural historian specializing in ancient Indian architecture, “A Mughal-Style Pleasure Pavilion from a Hindu Palace or Garden Resort"
