10:00 am–6:00 pm
Rubin Museum of Art
150 West 17 Street
Learn to listen with your whole body. Explore how sound and our sense of hearing shape our daily lives, our traditions, our history, and all of existence. Organized cyclically—from creation to death to rebirth—the exhibition explores different dimensions of sound and listening and its many functions in Tibetan Buddhism. Featuring work by more than 20 artists, The World Is Sound juxtaposes new site-specific commissions and works by prominent contemporary sound artists with historical objects from the museum’s collection of Tibetan Buddhist art to encourage reflection on how we listen and to challenge entrenched ways of thinking.
Free with museum admission ($15, $10/students & seniors, free/ ages 12 & under)
