In traditional Tibetan medicine, pulse reading is a complex form of diagnosis which requires physicians to listen deeply to the sound waves and vibrations of one’s heartbeat. In collaboration with Warper Party, The Rubin Museum presents a museum-wide multi-media event, PULSE, which invites electronic musicians and video artists to listen deeply and explore their own beats through inspiration from the new exhibition, Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine.

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.
