In East Asian cultures, the lingzhi mushroom was believed to be a spiritual organism that thrived only at sacred sites. Drawing from the Cantor’s rich collection of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean art, A Mushroom Perspective on Sacred Geography brings together a wide variety of objects (painting, ceramic, jade, lacquer, and works on paper) to examine the dynamic interconnections between humans, natural
organisms, and sacred landscapes. the exhibition, curated by Phoenix Yu-chuan Chen, a PhD candidate in the Department of Art & Art history, ultimately urges us to consider our own longstanding and ongoing relationship with nature. On view in the Lynn Krywick Gibbons Gallery
