Additional Information

Celebrate the closing day of our exhibition "How to Make the Universe Right" by learning about instruments from Vietnam and southern China.

After finding inspiration in the galleries, create a watercolor painting while listening to music from around the world—including the very songs introduced in the exhibition!


About the Exhibition "How to Make the Universe Right" presents a large selection of rare religious scrolls, ceremonial clothing, and ritual objects of the Yao, Tày, Sán Dìu, Cao Lan, Sán Chay, Nùng, and other populations of northern Vietnam and southern China. Each group has their own traditions of educating and initiating priests and shamans, who serve as intermediaries between the physical and spiritual worlds and between the community and deities, in order to make the universe right through healing, balancing the forces of nature, and communicating with ancestors. The Yao’s practices are most prominently associated with Daoism, a religious and philosophical tradition of Chinese origin, while for the other peoples, Daoist beliefs are combined with aspects of Buddhism, Tantrism, and Confucianism.
