Listening to Bamboo: An Unrivaled Japanese Art Form,
San Antonio Museum of Art

Live and online lecture, September 20, 2022, 6pm

Robert T. Coffland will trace the development of Japanese bamboo basketry into an art form. This evolution started in the early Meiji period and continues today. Through this presentation, Coffland would like the audience to consider seeing the artists’ creations as sculpture.

Robert T. Coffland is one of the world’s leading experts on Japanese bamboo. He is the author of Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Arts, The Bamboo Basket Art of Higashi Takesonsai, and Hin: The Quiet Beauty of Japanese Bamboo Art. Coffland founded TAI Gallery which introduced contemporary Japanese art to the American public. Coffland and his late wife, Mary Hunt Kahlenberg, mounted two major exhibitions in Japan, Mother Earth/Father Sky: Two Views of Nature and Matisse’s Secret: Kuba Textiles from Zaire, which also traveled to museums in the US.

Pax Cultura: The Banner of Peace, JLF New York
Live event, Thursday, September 14, 3pm EDT

Panel discussion with Swaminathan Aiyar, Gopalkrishna Gandhi, and Asha Jadeja Motwani in conversation with Ramu Damodaran.
The Banner of Peace, symbolic of the Roerich Pact—the first international treaty dedicated to the protection of artistic establishments, scientific institutions and historical monuments—was proposed by Russian artist, philosopher and writer Nicholas Roerich, illustrated after he had shifted to India, and signed in 1935 by an American President along with representatives from twenty Latin American countries—a global coming together to ensure the longevity of artistic and cultural treasures. The original painting is now in the custodianship of DAG. This session observes the cultural and historical significance of a Pact that famously preceded the formation of the United Nations while evaluating its humanitarian significance in today's world. This presentation is part of a day-long event Jaipur Literature Festival New York, which is presented with Teamwork Arts and with support from DAG and Asia Society.
