Paintings, drawings, videos, sculptures, installations and live performance art, as six New York City-based artists present modern takes on Buddhist traditions and teachings. Artists James Walton Fox, Valley Burke Fox, Shigeru Oyatani, E. Elizabeth Peters, Wesley Simon, and Jayoung Yoon approach their spiritual journeys through multiple mediums that come together to represent confluence, compromise or conflict in the journey toward enlightenment. A portion of all sales will benefit Tibet House US and its ongoing work to preserve and present Tibetan culture.
At 7pm ET, artist Jayoung Yoon will present a special installation and live performance Clearing The Mind, based on the Zen concept of living in the moment.She will employ a number of balls made of human hair that represent attached memories and thoughts. Throughout the meditative performance, which will be accompanied by a Shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) played by Zachary Skinner, Ms. Yoon will perform an intimately quiet and slow process of cutting the connection and emptying the thoughts, inviting the audience to capture the past and cleanse their accumulated memories.
