Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Enacting Stillness” is on view at the 8th Floor, the exhibition space of the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, in New York through Friday, January 13. The group exhibition, which features 16 international artists, “considers the political potential of slowing down and stopping as forms of resistance, protest, and refusal,” according to a press release.
