Kumano is one of Japanese visual artist Mariko Mori's early video works that demonstrates her sustained interest in spiritual belief systems. Through Aug. 1.

Curator Miwako Tezuka has selected works from Asia Society's Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection that will be shown alongside the installation of Kumano . The works are religious icons from various parts of Asia. Elegantly depicted in a variety of styles and materials, these images of gods and goddesses testify to the mutability of religious icons over space and time. Like Mori's video, they attest to the perseverance of human faith and the constantly changing but lasting tradition of visualizing and aspiring toward a higher consciousness.
