Free tour: Copies and Invention in East Asia

Sun., Sept. 29, 2-3 p.m.


The act of producing copies has a special meaning in Buddhism. From simply reciting and rewriting Buddha’s teachings to creating multiple images of sacred Buddhist figures, objects and texts, or the commissioning of one million pagodas, copying served to increase karmic merit—​guaranteeing a better afterlife and eventually leading to enlightenment. In this conversation, Kevin Carr, Associate Professor of Japanese Art History at University of Michigan and specialist of Buddhist art, and Natsu Oyobe, UMMA Curator of Asian Art, will guide us through Buddhist art objects featured in the current UMMA exhibition "Copies and Invention in East Asia."

Bill and Sherri are white, progressive and proud. Respectively the headmaster and dean of admissions of a New Hampshire boarding school, they’ve dedicated their 15-year tenure to diversifying the school’s mostly white population. But when their high-achieving son’s Ivy League dreams are crushed, the family’s reaction betrays a schism between their public values and their private aspirations. An incisively funny look at privilege, power, and the perils of whiteness. Directed by Carla Milarch. Admissions features Joe Bailey, Sarah Burcon, Diane Hill, Jeremy Kucharek, and Cynthia Szczesny. September 20 - October 13, 2019 Thursday, Friday, Saturdays: 8pm, Sundays: 2pm 734-635-8450
