Pulitzer Foundation Workshop
Stanley K. Abe, 81
On November 10 and 11, 2011, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis sponsored a workshop in which twelve graduate students and four professors of Asian art history commented on the context of objects in the Foundation’s exhibition “Reflections of the Buddha” (9 September 2011–10 March 2012). Many of the participants were not familiar with this exhibition of Buddhist art or the Foundation and its Tadao Andō–designed headquarters and exhibition space opened in 2001. However, the workshop raised many questions of context and meaning that should be of great interest to students, scholars, and curators of Asian art. Hence this publication of short reports from participants in the workshop: Phillip Bloom, Marsha Haufler, Katherine Brooks, Catherine Becker, and Stanley K. Abe.
