Celebrated for its flexibility and strength, the perennial bamboo has enjoyed diverse lives in Japanese art and culture, from delectable edibles and delicately carved tea utensils to bold ink splashes and conceptual sculptures. Join us as Dr. Halle O’Neal, Mellon Assistant Professor of History of Art at Vanderbilt, explores these various manifestations, many of which balance on the edge of function and art. After the program, tour Modern Twist: Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Art in the Museum of Art.
