Densely wooded area with water in the forefront

PJG/Michael Drewry

The Japanese garden is not simply a place of beauty, serenity and contemplation grounded in a long tradition, but it is also a holistic art form functioning as a place of discovery and innovation that continues to evolve through cross-pollination with other cultural forms. This talk explores the historical journey of one of the world's oldest land art forms and examines its evolving relevance to the world. Inviting experts of critical acclaim from various creative fields, this interactive webinar delves into how Japanese landscape design principles and aesthetics have impacted the ways in which modern society approaches art and architecture while helping mold the human relationship with nature. This is the first of the five-part Living Traditions webinar series. Speakers: Kendall Brown, Professor of Asian Art History, California State University, Long Beach Dana Buntrock, Professor of Architecture, University of California, Berkeley Dakin Hart, Senior Curator, The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum Moderator: Aki Nakanishi, Arlene Schnitzer Curator of Culture, Art, and Education, Portland Japanese Garden
