This talk uncovers the rich artistic tradition of Zen, as well as everyday objects such as staff, robes and rags, to provide clues into the complex thought that underlies a tradition known for its simplicity. Join co-editors of Zen and Material Culture Pamela D. Winfield and Steve Heine to dig beneath the stereotypes and explore the ways in which art and artifacts illuminate Zen thought. The talk will be moderated by award-winning novelist, filmmaker and Zen Buddhist priest Ruth Ozeki. Tickets are $14 or $11 for Japan Society members, seniors and students.
