Awaken: A Tibetan Buddhist Journey Toward Enlightenment

Rubin Museum / New York / Art

In Tibetan Buddhism, tantric rituals lead practitioners along the path to enlightenment—a state of awakened truth, where mortal suffering falls away. This exhibition, made of 37 artworks from the seventh to the 21st centuries, recreates a journey of self-knowledge and transformation. Sculptures, scroll paintings, manuscripts, and ritual items guide viewers through the gallery, setting the stage for nirvana. —E.C.
