Tom Sachs’ NODATE Tea Ceremony
Join artist Tom Sachs and special guests for a demonstration of the artist’s thoroughly contemporary take on nodate, Japan’s open-air tea ceremony. In his unique interpretation, Sachs pays homage to Japanese culture and craftsmanship from a special stage, arranged with his own portable tea ceremony set. Traditionally codified rules and rituals are upended, drawing attention to the ongoing relevance of the tea ceremony’s ideals—simplicity, silence, nature and harmony. For a fully immersive experience, we invite you to watch these videos by the artist before attending the tea ceremony.
Tickets: $15/12 Japan Society members.
