The Sun Valley Center for the Arts will introduce its latest multidisciplinary project, "Outside In: Indian Art Abroad," on Friday, Dec. 18, at The Center in Ketchum. The exhibition explores Indian art and culture through the work of Indian artists, writers and filmmakers primarily working outside India. The show will run through Saturday, Feb. 20.

Exhibition highlights include the Ragamala Dance Performance on Friday, Jan. 15, at 7:30 p.m. at the Community Campus in Hailey; a Bollywood Film, "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" (The Lover Will Take the Bride) on Thursday, Jan. 28, at 6 p.m. at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey and a lecture by Sir Salman Rushdie on Thursday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m. at the Sun Valley Inn Limelight Room.

The Center in Ketchum will display work by four contemporary artists—Gauri Gill, Baseera Khan, Annu Palakunnathu Matthew and Sutapa Biswas.

"Outside In" will also include a small exhibition organized by the Pacific Asia Museum focused on the Hindu deity Ganesha, the Remover of Obstacles. "Discovering Ganesha" explores the enduring role of the deity through materials ranging from centuries-old sculptures to photographs and a video documenting a contemporary festival honoring the god.
