RECORDING AVAILABLE | Lecture by artist Makoto Fujimura.
RECORDING OF THE EVENT AVAILABLE HERE
As part of our ongoing series on Material Futures, artist and writer Makoto Fujimura presents his thesis for culture care in light of the ongoing pandemic and global crisis. If ever there was a need for generative thinking it is now. Fujimura brings examples of generative creativity in his own painting practice and will also describe the Japanese method of Kintsugi: finding beauty in the restoration of broken objects.
The lecture will be followed by a conversation between Fujimura and artist, Alastair Gordon, co-founder Morphē Arts. There will be time for questions followed by optional break-out rooms for those who wish to take the conversation further.
Makoto Fujimura (b. 1960, Boston) is a leading contemporary artist whose process driven, refractive “slow art” has been described by David Brooks of New York Times as “a small rebellion against the quickening of time”. He is the author of "Culture Care: Reconnecting with Beauty for our Common Life", "Silence and Beauty: A Hidden Faith Born of Suffering” (both IVPress) and “Art&Faith: A Theology of Making” (Yale Press, January, 2021). He is the Founder of IAMCultureCare, Fujimura Institute, and co-founder of Kintsugi Academy.
