The range of the Rubin's mission is on full display with Measure Your Existence. After wandering through galleries filled with millennia-old masterpieces, journey to the top floor and participate in some of the most interesting contemporary installations of the year. Six contemporary artists contributed works to this show, built around the theme of impermanence. Take a piece of candy off the floor. Write a deceased loved-one a letter. Watch a man punch a clock once an hour for a year. Plan on coming back again to see the works as they change through interaction.
