The Ecology of Eternity in a Song-Dynasty Buddhist Monastery
Visit the Huntington Gardens for a talk by Phillip Bloom on the history of Shizhuanshan, China.
In his inaugural Huntington lecture, Phillip Bloom, The Huntington’s new Director of the Center for East Asian Garden Studies and curator of the Chinese Garden, will examine the history of Shizhuanshan, a hilltop Buddhist sanctuary in southwestern China constructed in the late 11th century. Bloom will argue that at Shizhuanshan, architecture, image, and text work together to transform the natural environment itself into a site for the eternal performance of Buddhist ritual.
