Finding Zen: Uncovering Meaning in Art & Artifacts


How much do you really know about Zen? There is much more to the practice and philosophy of Japan's most famed religious tradition than meets the eye. The rich artistic tradition of Zen, as well as everyday objects like staffs, robes and rags, provides clues to the complex thought underlying a tradition known for its simplicity. Dig beneath the stereotypes and explore the profound ways in which art and artifacts can illuminate Zen thought with specialists Pamela D. Winfield and Steven Heine, co-editors of Zen and Material Culture. Moderated by award-winning novelist, filmmaker, and Zen Buddhist priest Ruth Ozeki. Followed by a reception.

Tickets $14/$11 Japan Society members, seniors & students
