Join Laura Vookles, HRM Chair, Curatorial Department, in the Museum’s new West Wing galleries for a visual and visceral experience of the inaugural exhibition, Kengo Kito: Unity on the Hudson. Constructed out of thousands of colorful hula hoops, the installation is, according to the artist, “. . . representative of the surface of a moving water, as circles are deconstructed into lines, spreading into uncontrollable and unpredictable movements.” Tour the immersive installation made expressly for this occasion out of unexpected material, symbolizing humanity’s interconnectedness.
