This exhibition celebrates continuity and change in one of the city's most important immigrant communities. By exploring the artistry, festivity and ritual associated with Indian weddings in Houston, Anointed and Adorned captures the beauty that resides in the old and accustomed, and the appeal of the new and surprising.

Indian weddings offer celebrants the opportunity to recreate the traditions of their mother country and craft artful observances reflecting their new environment. Featuring photography by Sohil Maknojia and community-based research by Rati Ramadas Girish, Anointed and Adorned tells the story of the artistic traditions and practices that inform one of the most important ritual and festive moments in Indian life.

On view from May 23 through July 12.
