Gallery Talk: The Buddha's Word @ Stanford
Please join Ellen Huang, Curatorial Fellow, Asian Art at Cantor Arts Center, Paul Harrison, George Edwin Burnell Professor of Religious Studies at Stanford University, and Michaela Mross, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Stanford University for a gallery talk in The Buddha’s Word @ Stanford.
The Buddha’s Word @ Stanford showcases Buddhist manuscripts and prints held at the Cantor and in Stanford libraries, ranging in dates from around the 11th century to the early 20th century, and coming from various parts of the traditional Buddhist world, from Sri Lanka to Japan. The Buddha’s Word @ Stanford highlights the written word not simply as the visual counterpart to speech but as a thing of beauty and sacredness in and of itself.
This exhibition is on view in the Madeleine H. Russell Gallery from October 18, 2017 – March 18, 2018.
