The missing Peace : Artists Consider the Dalai Lama
December 1, 2007 – March 16, 2008

 

 

Works by upwards of 88 artists from 30 countries in a landmark exhibition that offers up art as a lens through which we experience our common humanity. Established and emerging artists, celebrities and others, have been invited to create works that capture the essence of His Holiness and his mission of peace. The exhibition, which has been attracting large crowds at every tour venue from Los Angeles to New York, has an explicitly moral and educational purpose: to promote engagement with essential questions of values and ethics. Artists include Marina Abramovic, Seyed Alavi, Laurie Anderson, Richard Avedon, Sanford Biggers, Squeak Carnwath, Long-Bin Chen, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Chuck Close, Santiago Cucullu, Binh Danh, Richard Gere, Jim Hodges, Jenny Holzer, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Anish Kapoor, Kimsooja, Enrique Martinez Celaya, Michal Rovner, Sebastiao Salgado, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Mike and Doug Starn, Pat Steir, Adriana Varejao, Bill Viola, William Wiley, Negishi Yoshiro and many more.
