The Luckman Gallery is pleased to present Taiwanese-American artist Tu-2. This exhibition includes a small survey of Tu-2’s early Mao-ology work, selections from his 108 series of blue and silver portraits made through “meditative mark-making” using only one silver pencil on blue paper, and selections of his new work. A large section of the gallery has been transformed into a meditation refuge where viewers and students alike are invited to stay and practice mindfulness as well as learn about meditation practices.
