VISIT THE RU­BIN MU­SEUM OF ART

While the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mu­seum of Art and Mu­seum of Modern Art are ob­vi­ous choices for mu­seum lovers, I quite en­joyed my time at the Ru­bin Mu­seum of Art that prides it­self on art and cul­ture of the Hi­malayas, In­dia and neigh­bour­ing re­gions. There was a Henri Cartier-Bres­son In­dia In Full Frame ex­hibit run­ning when I had vis­ited (it’s on un­til Septem­ber 4), which de­picts his work dur­ing In­dia’s par­ti­tion. His black and white pho­to­graphs, es­pe­cially from the time of Gandhi’s last day and events around his fu­neral, are mov­ing. Cur­rently run­ning un­til Jan­uary 8, 2018 is The World In Sound ex­hibit that delves into how we lis­ten to sound with all our senses. Open daily 11am-5pm; tick­ets are priced at US$15/`955; ru­bin­mu­seum.org.
