Upcoming Exhibitions

September 3 – November 27, 2016

Concurrent with Doorway to an Enlightened World, the Carlos Museum will exhibit new works by contemporary Tibetan artist Gonkar Gyatso. One of the few Tibetan artists in exile to gain international recognition, Gyatso’s work mixes Buddhist symbols with the iconography of pop culture, bridging Eastern and Western cultures, while examining the traditions of both in new and engaging ways.


November 7 - December 7, 2016
The First Folio of Shakespeare, published in 1623, is one of the most famous books in the world—and for good reason. Published seven years after Shakespeare's death, the First Folio was the first collected edition of William Shakespeare's plays. Shakespeare's fellow actors John Heminge and Henry Condell put together the text of the First Folio.
