Featuring photographs of sacred landscapes in northwestern China by New York-based artist Lisa Ross. In and around the Taklamakan Desert, Ross photographs Muslim shrines, or mazars, often adorned with recycled flags and fabrics. Ross's remarkable images are largely without the presence of the human figure, allowing the viewer to inhabit a space that is unmediated and complex.

Venue Description: The Rubin Museum of Art holds one of the world's most important collections of Himalayan art and is the only museum in NYC dedicated to works from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Tibet, western China, Myanmar, and Mongolia. The museum runs an active set of programs for the general public that help illuminate themes inherent in its exhibitions, including the Naked Soul live concert series.
