Exhibitions: Buddhism Times Two at SVA

By Published on .

A pair of complimentary shows are on display through August 22 at the School of Visual Arts in New York: In a collaboration with the Rubin Museum of Art, SVA presents "The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama"; and an exhibition of work by SVA faculty and alumni, "Everything I Do Always Comes Back to Me," curated by Milton Glaser, an SVA instructor and board member since 1961, addresses conflict, compassion and the Buddhist ethic. This latter show also includes work by designers James Victore, Kevin O'Callaghan and Stefan Sagmeister. Three pieces from "The Missing Peace," which is organized by the Committee of 100 for Tibet, and the Dalai Lama Foundation, and curated by independent curator Randy Rosenberg, are seen here, led by SVA alumus Long Bin-Chen's remarkable "World Buddha Head Project." Other artists represented in the show include Richard Avedon, Anish Kapoor, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Sebastiao Salgado. In addition, two pieces are shown from "Everything I Do Always Comes Back to Me." Both exhibitions are at SVA's Visual Arts Gallery, 601 W. 26th St., 15th floor.
