With a resume that includes exhibitions at MoMA PS1, Whitney Museum of American Art, and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, among others, Prema Murthy introduces the MERKABA, known as the star tetrahedron, a portal into higher dimensions. Comprised of video, drawings, and an installation, Murthy’s work is an extension of the artist’s ongoing exploration in the ever-shifting boundaries of embodiment, cognition and Mind. She references math and science to locate and map our interconnections to the Universe on a micro and macro, inner and outer, physical and spiritual planes.
