"A multimedia panorama of contemporary art practice at its best." Coagula Art Journal #81, August 2006

"You owe it to yourself to put The Missing Peace at the top of your summer itinerary – not only for its chock-a-block feast of first-rate artwork, but because it warms the soul like a soothing tonic." Coast Magazine, July 2006

"One of the most exciting art exhibits to hit this town in a long while." Los Angeles Journal, July 2006

Eighty-eight contemporary artists from more than twenty-five countries—including Richard Avedon, Laurie Anderson, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Chuck Close, Adam Fuss, Jenny Holzer, Kimsooja, Michal Rovner, Sebastiao Salgado, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Mike and Doug Starn, Bill Viola, and Katarina Wong—offer a wide range of new and existing works inspired by the messages, vision, and values of the Dalai Lama.

The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama, an internationally traveling exhibition debuting at the Fowler Museum and curated by Randy Rosenberg, is organized by the Committee of 100 for Tibet and the Dalai Lama Foundation. It was made possible by generous funding from Ron Haak and Darlene Markovich, Sandra and Bernard Magnussen, the Betlach Family Foundation, the Zaffaroni Foundation, and The Dalai Lama Foundation. Additional support was provided by Anonymous, Chase Bailey, the Committee of 100 for Tibet, and Carolyn Zecca-Ferris. In-kind support was provided by Tank Design, Beals Martin, Jean Simpson, SPUR Projects, Alain Despert, and a gift in memory of Sadako Kutaka. We are especially grateful to the participating artists, all of whom have donated their work.
