The Menil Collection
1515 Sul Ross Houston, TX
“Experiments With the Truth: Gandhi and Images of Nonviolence,” now on exhibit at The Menil Collection, is the first ever visual arts exhibition to examine Gandhi’s philosophy and ethics of nonviolence — that is, his satyagraha. It includes the famous photograph Gandhi’s Last Possessions, which shows what the great man owned at the time of his death: two pairs of sandals, two dinner bowls, eyeglasses, a prayer book and a few other small items.
Curated from a wide range of museums, galleries and private collections, the pieces on display include paintings, sculpture, religious icons, texts and photographs that document Gandhi’s life and legacy. “Experiments With the Truth: Gandhi and Images of Nonviolence” marks the 145th anniversary of his birth.
