The labyrinth is one of the world's oldest symbols, and its meaning is often shrouded in myth and mystery or ties to religious rites. Today, this enigmatic form inspires artists to create their own interpretations in ice, salt, wood, stone, glass, cement, and metal. Showcasing work by artists, landscape artists, and architects from around the world, the diverse and stunning examples include pavement labyrinths of 13th-century French cathedrals, a historic English turf maze, Renaissance hedge mazes, and numerous present-day projects by Yoko Ono, Richard Fleischner, Dan Graham, Robert Irwin, Arata Isozaki, and Robert Morris.
