Inspired by Buddhist principles, the Mandala Lab is a new space on the Rubin Museum’s third floor that invites curiosity about our emotions. Visitors are asked to consider how complex feelings show up in their everyday lives and to imagine how they might have the power to transform them.
The Mandala Lab features thought-provoking and playful experiences — including a scent and memory library, a synchronized breathing activity, and an orchestra of eight gongs suspended over water — that guide visitors along an inner journey focused on self-awareness and awareness of others.
Artists contributing works to the Mandala Lab include Laurie Anderson, Sanford Biggers, Tenzin Tsetan Choklay, Billy Cobham, Amit Dutta, Sheila E., Peter Gabriel, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Sarah Hennies, Huang Ruo, Shivamani, Palden Weinreb, Wang Yahui, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Bora Yoon, and perfumer Christophe Laudamiel.
See, smell, touch, and breathe your way through this space designed to inspire connection, empathy, and learning.
