Kevin Greenwood portrait

Kevin R. E. Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, discusses Art and Being in the Garden of Ryōan-ji, his multimedia exhibition on the iconic dry landscape garden at the Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan.

Greenwood will give a brief history of this famous site and debunks the myth—influential among many 20th-century artists—that the garden was intended for Zen meditation. He highlights artists who represented the garden through the lens of modernist abstraction.

These free programs are presented on the second Tuesday of the month in the East Gallery. Tea and cookies served following each talk.
