ARTISTS ON ART - TONIGHT!
At 6:15 p.m. here at the Rubin Museum, Assistant Curator Beth Citron will lead an informal conversation with artist Isca Greenfield-Sanders about her artistic process and how landscape is incorporated into her work.
Radical Terrain, the third exhibition in the series Modernist Art from India, highlights the exploration of landscape in Indian art for the generation after independence. The exhibition will also feature new work by international contemporary artists of diverse backgrounds currently working in and identifying with landscape. This is both a response to the modernist paintings on view and to work towards a nuanced conceptual understanding of what “landscape” in art is.
Radical Terrain is currently on view now at the Rubin Museum of Art, in New York, through April 2013.

Thangka: Images from a Perfect World
Wednesday February 8 at 1:00 p.m.
Jamyang is a Tibetan monk and thangka artist living in a rural village where the encroaching influence of capitalism is changing everyday life. Having grown up in a household where all the men left home to become monks, Jamyang is torn between his destiny as a monk and his obligation to support his family with his skills as a thangka painter. A symbol of the shifting times, he must choose between money and time, his family’s survival and the quest for enlightenment.
Rubin Museum of Art curator Karl Debreczeny will moderate the post-screening discussion.
