Secrets of Buddhist Art: Tibet, Japan, and Korea

Frist Center for the Visual Arts
919 Broadway,
Nashville, Tennessee, USA
Feb 10, 2017 To May 07, 2017


Detail: Secrets of Buddhist Art showcases magnificent and rare works of art from the Newark Museum’s renowned collection, revealing Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhist practices of Tibet, Japan, and Korea. The sections are organized nonlinearly according to five themes that intentionally transcend national boundaries, with renderings of similar subjects that encourage comparisons among regional aesthetics while distinguishing aspects unique to each area. The exhibition also features a ritually created Tibetan sand mandala that connects to the older works of art and reminds us that this is very much a living practice.
