About the Exhibit
This season the Rubin presents the work of three artists lining the way to the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room. This rotating series invites contemporary artists to contribute work harmonious with the Shrine room. Tehran-born Shiva Ahmadi contributed videos referencing the plight of refugees. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge invites visitors to shake his hand (actually a bronze cast of his own arm), reminding them that "wisdom can only be passed by the touching of hands." Nepalese artist Tsherin Sherpa built a striking memorial to the loss suffered in Nepal in the 2015 earthquake.
