Toshiko Nishikawa: Senbazuru

Friday, October 29th to Thursday, December 9th, 2010.
Open 12pm to 6pm or by appointment, Wednesday through Saturday.


Imagine 1,000 mirrored orbs, all connected by a wire, suspended from the ceiling of the Vilcek Foundation Gallery. That is the new interactive installation envisioned by Japanese-born artist Toshiko Nishikawa, to symbolize her perspective of humanity—that we are all connected within the global community. Ms. Nishikawa will engage viewers in her vision by inviting them to take hold of the orbs, and in the concave curve of the spheres, reflect upon their own image and place in that community.

The artist was born in Yokohama, Japan, and currently lives and works in New York City.

This event is free and open to the public. View the Event Calendar >
