Friendly Gestures [Namaste]: Group Show Offers New Perspectives on Global Respect
Throughout South Asia, people greet each other with namaste—a word often translated as “I bow to you.” Now, in conjunction with Queens College’s Year of India, the Queens College Art Center is presenting Friendly Gestures [NAMASTE], a group show that explores the theme of respect through art, language, music, and performance.
The exhibition is sponsored by Queens College’s Kupferberg Center for the Arts, QC Alumni Relations Office, Asian/American Center, the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, the Libraries, and Provost James R. Stellar. It is held in conjunction with the college’s Year of India program.
Images, as well as biographical and sales information, are available upon request.
