Cave Temples of Dunhuang: Buddhist Art on China's Silk Road
Cave Temples of Dunhuang, an exhibition jointly organized by the Getty Conservation Institute, Getty Research Institute and the Dunhuang Academy, was held at the Getty Center from May 7 to September 4, 2016. The exhibition, which included three hand-painted replicas of Mogao caves, a digital immersive experience of a cave, and 43 objects from the famed Library Cave at Mogao, was an outgrowth of more than 25 years of collaborative work at the Grottoes by the GCI.
