Oxherding

October 29, 2011–March 4, 2012  [+]

The product of a collaborative meditation by two internationally known artistic visionaries, Max Gimblett and Lewis Hyde, Oxherding is based on the Song-Dynasty Chinese “Oxherding Series,” a Zen Buddhist parable of self-discovery composed of pictures and verse. A contemporary American set of perspectives on this greatly venerated Buddhist text, the exhibition includes six collaborative artist books, a series of 10 sumi ink paintings by Max Gimblett, and 10 poems in Chinese and three English versions translated by Lewis Hyde.
