The Monologue of Ice @ Rubin Museum of Art

Atta Kim's Melting Ice Buddha

To mark the closing of the Grain of Emptiness exhibition, South Korean photographer Atta Kim will document the melting of a five-foot-tall ice sculpture of the Buddha. Visitors can participate in the work by collecting the melting water with the injunction that they use it to tend to new growth—for example, a new spring seedling.
The melting begins on Friday, March 25 at 6:00 p.m. during the K2 Lounge, and the museum will be open after hours so that it can be viewed through the night and into the weekend.
