Earthly Hollows: Cave and Kiln Transformations
October 18, 2017–March 18, 2018
This exhibition presents a focused look at caves and kilns, aka “earthly hollows,” as symbolic and physical passages of transformation. Drawing from Cantor’s rich collection of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean art, Earthly Hollows: Cave and Kiln Transformations examines the dynamic ways in which caves, be they mountain grottoes or kilns, tunnel-like chambers made of earth and clay, interface mundane and mystical realms.
This exhibition is organized by the Cantor Arts Center. We gratefully acknowledge support from the Khoan and Michael Sullivan Fund.
The Cantor Arts Center is located at the intersection of Museum Way and Lomita Drive in the heart of the arts district on the Stanford campus. The Cantor faces the Bing Concert Hall across Palm Drive, northwest of The Oval and the Main Quad.
