Ashes and Snow first opened at the Arsenale in Venice, Italy, in 2002. The largest solo exhibition ever mounted in Italy, Ashes and Snow received international attention and praise. The Nomadic Museum made its debut in New York City on the Hudson River Park’s Pier 54 (March through June 2005) and then migrated to Santa Monica, California (January through May 14, 2006). The Ashes and Snow exhibition will be on display in Tokyo from March 11th through June 24th, 2007. The show has attracted more than 1 million visitors since its first public unveiling.
“The Nomadic Museum restores the possibility of wonder to museums whose excesses of clarity and light have banished the shadows. The power of the show and the power of the building are so reciprocal that it is difficult to separate the dancer from the dance. Colbert and Ban condition the senses of the visitors to facilitate their psychological entry into the space of the photographs, to deliver the message that man is not, and cannot be, separate from the nature within which he evolved. In these agnostic and cynical times, the building becomes a place to feel and even believe. Ashes and Snow is a show that is disarmingly, and grandly, simple.” —Modern Painter
