Tea as Context: Treasuring Ceramics
Thursday, June 24 at 5pm EDT

Internationally recognized as a pillar of Japanese culture, the art of tea (chanoyu), with its highly formalized aspects, is often misperceived as a stiff and impassive ritual. Rather, throughout its history, chanoyu has developed from the treasured relationships and bonds formed over “shared hot water.” These connections are integral to a longstanding, vibrant tea culture and further the rich stories behind the diverse practices and exquisite tea objects seen today. This unmissable Zoom event assembles an all-star panel of experts on the subject. A discussion of the relative merits of a teabowl for the curious collector will be a highlight of the event.

PANELISTS:
NICOLLE BERTOZZI, PhD candidate in Japanese history at Columbia University
LOUISE CORT, Curator Emerita of Ceramics, Freer | Sackler, National Museum of Asian Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC
ANDREW MASKE, Associate Professor in Art History and Visual Studies, Arts of Asia and Japan Studies, University of Kentucky
MORGAN PITELKA, Professor and Chair, Department of Asian Studies, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
ANDREW WATSKY, Professor and Director, Program in East Asian Art and Archaeology, Princeton University
