Buy TicketsAbout Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form: Works by Miya Ando

Drawing on the important Buddhist text known as the Heart Sutra, artist Miya Ando responds to our unique building with references to elemental materials such as metal, light, water, and wood. This site-specific response to Yoshio Taniguchi's architecture reframes the visitor's perception of the space, and invites contemplation of the nature of reality.About Eternal Offerings: Chinese Ritual Bronzes

Exploring the ritual significance of ancient Chinese bronzes, this exhibition sheds new light on innovations of form and ornamentation, and the advanced techniques of casting of these stunning objects dating from the Shang to the Han Dynasties (1600 BCE to 220 CE). Bronze designs influenced other art forms in China, and later examples in jade, blue and white ceramics, and cloisonné will also be featured.

Eternal Offerings: Chinese Ritual Bronzes is organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Generous support for the exhibition and related catalogue provided by the Blakemore Foundation, the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Bei Shan Tang Foundation, the Henry Luce Foundation, and Christie's.Tour Tips
