Description
 
Grain of Emptiness: Buddhism-Inspired Contemporary Art features modern and contemporary art by generationally and culturally disparate artists whose works engage in one way or another with Buddhist precepts and rituals. Video, installation, painting, photography, and performance art by Sanford Biggers, Theaster Gates, Atta Kim, Wolfgang Laib, and Charmion von Wiegand explore the ways in which Buddhism has been incorporated into the lives of people across cultures, opening up a discussion about the practice.

Since the emergence of the conceptual art movement in the 1960s, Western artists have taken up the Buddhist precepts of emptiness and impermanence and examined the ways in which they intersect with our everyday lives. Grain of Emptiness features five inheritors of that mid-century tradition.
