A Mushroom Perspective on Sacred Geography

Exhibition Website

Feb 8 2017 - May 15 2017

In East Asian cultures, the lingzhi mushroom was believed to be a spiritual organism that thrived only at sacred sites. Drawing from the Cantor’s rich collection of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean art, A Mushroom Perspective on Sacred Geography brings together a wide variety of objects (painting, ceramic, jade, lacquer, and works on paper) to examine the dynamic interconnections between humans, natural organisms, and sacred landscapes. the exhibition ultimately urges us to consider our own longstanding and ongoing relationship with nature.
