Mariko Mori’s work is informed and inspired by aspects of Japanese traditional culture, including chadō, or the way of tea, a practice she studies with devotion. This introduction to the time-honored and profound practice of chanoyu (tea ceremony) is led by a tea master from the New York branch of Urasenke, which has nurtured the rich cultural tradition of chanoyu since the early 17th century. Participants take part in an interactive tea ceremony demonstration and discussion of the philosophy behind the way of tea.

No experience necessary. Limited class size.


$75/$70 Japan Society members, students and seniors (includes exhibition admission).

Arts & Culture Lecture Programs are made possible by funding from the Lila Wallace-Reader’s Digest Endowment Fund.

Additional support is provided by Chris A. Wachenheim, and the Sandy Heck Lecture Fund.
