The Rubin is transforming. Read important updates from our Executive Director.

Reimagine: Himalayan Art Now contemplates and celebrates what Himalayan art means now with a Museum-wide exhibition of artworks by over 30 contemporary artists, many from the Himalayan region and diaspora. The entire Museum is transformed with new commissions and recent works juxtaposed with objects from the Rubin’s collection, inviting new ways of encountering traditional Himalayan art.

The exhibition opens on March 15, 2024.


Reimagine: Himalayan Art Now is supported by Bob and Lois Baylis, Daphne Hoch Cunningham and John Cunningham, Noah P. Dorsky, Jacques and Natasha Gelman Foundation, Dan Gimbel of NEPC, LLC, Agnes Gund, New York Life, Matt and Ann Nimetz, The Prospect Hill Foundation, Eileen Caulfield Schwab, Taipei Cultural Center in New York, and UOVO.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.

The Rubin Museum’s programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.

This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
