Event Description

The Gallery Associates are pleased to present the 2023 Sunday Art Lecture Series featuring Dr. Katherine Young’s richly illustrated overview of youth and old age in South Asia, East Asia, and the West. The series portrays age as perceived through different cultural values, symbols, and archetypes. Join us for the first installment of As if Autumn Leaves: Age in Asian and Western Art.

Examining the paradox that the Buddha poignantly describes himself at 80 yet Buddhist art always images him as eternally young, this lecture explores how South Asian art features youth. In addition, Dr. Young addresses how new portraiture styles and photography reverse the erasure of old age in traditional visual arts.
