T+L Reports: The Lost World

This spring, three shows focus on often overlooked cultures beyond Europe and America. "Tibet: Treasures from the Roof of the World" at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco (June 12–Sept. 11; www.asianart.org) unveils nearly 200 Thangka paintings, sculptures, prayer wheels, and objets. • In Paris, the vibrant African continent takes the spotlight at the Pompidou Center with "Africa Remix" (May 25–Aug. 8; www.cnac-gp.fr), featuring the work of more than 80 contemporary artists hailing from North Africa to Cape Town. • And at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, "Adorning the World: Art of the Marquesas Islands" (May 10–Jan. 15; www.metmuseum.org) proves that the subjects of Paul Gauguin's lush canvases were themselves prolific creators. The Marquesans made no distinction between art and life: they covered their bodies and surroundings with elaborate iconography.
