Present Absence: Icons from the Collection of the Patriarch Athenagoras Orthodox Institute

Tuesday, February 3rd 2015 to Friday, May 29th 2015

This exhibition invites us to explore the paradoxical nature of icons as embodiments of both material beauty and divine presence. These sixteen icons, primarily 18th- and 19th-century works from Russia, comprise the first exhibition from the collection of the Patriarch Athenagoras Orthodox Institute.
