Sacred Spaces with The Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room

The Rubin Museum of Art
150 West 17th St.,
New York, USA
Oct 23, 2015 To Mar 27, 2017


Detail: This exhibition reflects on Sacred Spaces by focusing on devotional activities in awe-inspiring places. In particular, the exhibition presents three distinct but related environments shaped by acts of veneration. What spaces are sacred to you?

The Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room provides an immersive experience inspired by a traditional shrine that would be used for offering, devotion, prayer, and contemplation. Art and ritual objects are presented as they would be in an elaborate private household shrine. The new fourth-floor installation of the Shrine Room will more than double the visitor capacity of its current location.
