Telling Jahangir‘s Story: Planning an exhibition on the Mughal emperor Jahangir (1605-27) by Navina Haidar

The Mughal emperor Jahangir is one among the illustrious rulers of India’s Mughal dynasty. His inspired patronage of the arts will be the subject of a future exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (working title: Jahangir: Emperor, Connoisseur, Naturalist of India’s Mughal Age, 1605-27). This talk offers insight into the planning of this major exhibition – from the conceptual to the practical – exploring ways in which a curator can tell the gripping story of an age of brilliant artists, patrons, and global exchange.
