Pinaree Sanpitak

The Chrysler Museum of Art presents an important solo exhibition by Pinaree Sanpitak, the first time this large-scale responsive installation has been shown in the U.S.

This gallery full of silk-covered forms, suggestive of the stupas found in Buddhist religious tradition, gently rock and sway in response to the movement of passers-by. These quiet shapes evoke a sense of nurturing, refuge and contemplation, and they bring a colorful sense of life to the Museum.

An art installation that moves in response to the viewer


We'd like to thank all the volunteers who showed up for our Stupa Stuffing Party on Oct. 10. Your help with this installation was greatly appreciated. (See the pictures here.)
