Seeking Stillness

(Sunday) (Monday)

A series of installations in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art leads visitors on a journey of introspection, focusing on themes such as spaces of contemplation; the artistic process as a form of meditation; and nature as a site for clearing the mind. Spanning three galleries, “Seeking Stillness” places together works by a broad range of modern and contemporary artists—including Edward Weston, Agnes Martin, Park Seo Bo, Larry Bell, Martin Puryear, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Shellburne Thurber, and Zhan Wang. Highlights from the Museum’s historic holdings, including the Italian Mannerist masterpiece The Dead Christ with Angels (about 1524–27) by Rosso Fiorentino and Chinese paintings and scholar’s rocks, are dramatically displayed alongside the modern and contemporary works, offering surprise encounters.
