Encountering the Buddha: Art and Practice across Asia

Freer Gallery of Art / Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution
1050 Independence Ave SW,
Washington, D.C., USA
Oct 14, 2017 To Oct 14, 2020

Detail: Encounter Buddhist art through the lens of spiritual practice and the perspectives of practitioners. Drawing on the Freer|Sackler’s collections from across Asia, this exhibition expands the understanding of Buddhism in Asian art through both beautiful objects and immersive spaces. Visitors can step into a Tibetan Buddhist shrine, travel the Buddhist world with an eighth-century Korean monk, visit a Sri Lankan stupa, meet teachers and guardians, and discover multiple Buddhas and bodhisattvas. Encountering the Buddha illuminates the ways in which art and place embody and express the teachings of Buddhism.
