Makoto Fujimura will continue his 6-part lecture series on “Art, Love, and Beauty” with this 4th live broadcast focusing on “Art as Prayer.”
The evening will open with a performance by cellist Soo Bae. Soo Bae was the cellist in Chris Theofanidis’ “At the Still Point” for Qu4rtets. Her performance will be followed by an interview with Makoto Fujimura on the experience of being a high level classical musician as a mother and as a person of faith.
Makoto’s fourth lecture will focus on the phenomenology of art, with an emphasis on prayer. He will give several examples of the “phenomenological art” of Malevich and Reinhardt, but focus particularly on Reinhardt’s relationship with Thomas Merton, drawing upon Makoto’s own encounter with Merton.
