The opening of the new Southern Asian and Persian Art Galleries at The San Diego Museum of Art will commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the accession of the Edwin Binney 3rd Collection. The curatorial vision is to present in the first space the arts associated with Southern Asian temples,- Buddhist, Hindu, or Jain - from Afghanistan to Southeast Asia. The second space is dedicated to the arts appreciated in palace settings and royal collections from regions throughout India and Iran. The third gallery is for works of art made for those who worship at mosques.

This innovative mode of presentation of Southern Asian and Persian arts is organized according to the types of architectural spaces with which they are associated. This approach also crosses sectarian and national boundaries, integrating works from a variety of traditions and time periods that are linked together by the ways in which the people interacted with them in their original contexts.
