Ontological Status of Human Clothing Inside Buddhist Images

November 15, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Younmi Kim (Art History, Yale University) will present a talk on Buddhist imagery, stemming from her academic work on symbolic rituals, in which an architectural space serves as a non-human agent; the interplay between visibility and invisibility in Buddhist art; and the sacred spaces and religious macrocosms created by religious architecture for imaginary pilgrimages. This is a part of APSI’s Fall 2016 Speaker Series.
