From the Verandah: Art, Buddhism, Presence
October 5, 2003 – January 4, 2004
“A seamless work of lingering beauty and unfolding perceptions that embodied the simplicity of Zen principles.”
Sculpture Magazine, September 2004
This experimental exhibition was a unique collaboration between the UCLA Fowler Museum, the UCLA Hammer Museum, and the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center. Designed to evoke Buddhist concepts of heightened awareness and mindful engagement, the simple installation featured the work of artists Wolfgang Laib and Hirokazu Kosaka, and the creative contributions of Michael Rotondi, Joe Goode, Yuval Ron, and the team of artists/scientists who created the multimedia installation Ecce Homology.
From the Verandah was part of a West-Coast-based initiative called ‘Awake: Art, Buddhism, and the Dimensions of Consciousness.’
