About

The Japan Foundation is delighted to present this special book launch of ‘ZEN LANDSCAPES: Perspectives on Japanese Gardens and Ceramics' — the first in-depth study in the West to examine the correspondences between Japanese gardens and ceramics. The evening will feature a talk from the book's author, Allen S. Weiss (New York University), who will discuss the interrelations between Japanese gardens and the arts in Japanese culture, specifically focusing on the issue of the limits of representation. Japanese garden expert Dr Jill Raggett (Writtle College) will provide a brief commentary on the book before joining Weiss for a panel discussion followed by questions from the audience. The formal proceedings will be followed by a drinks reception.
