Your Mind, This Moment
Your Mind, This Moment: art and the practice of meditation. The average museum visitor spends about fifteen seconds in front of a work of art--and in fact spends a good chunk of that small blip of time reading the wall label. What can you really see in just fifteen seconds? This exhibition is an experiment. It asks if we might entice visitors to linger, with greater openness of mind, in front of the minimalist, abstract, or conceptual works in the collection by enlisting the patient practices of mindfulness meditation, so widely popular today.
