Pre-Concert Lecture: Longing and Belonging

Join us for a lecture led by Makoto Fujimura, a leading contemporary artist. Makoto's process driven, refractive “slow art” has been described by David Brooks of New York Times as “a small rebellion against the quickening of time.” Robert Kushner, in the mid 90’s, written on Fujimura’s art in Art in America this way: “The idea of forging a new kind of art, about hope, healing, redemption, refuge, while maintaining visual sophistication and intellectual integrity is a growing movement, one which finds Makoto Fujimura’s work at the vanguard.” Fujimura’s art has been featured widely in galleries and museums around the world.  In 2014, the American Academy of Religion named Fujimura as it’s 2014 “Religion and the Arts” award recipient. This award is presented annually to professional artists who have made significant contributions to the relationship of art and religion, both for the academy and a broader public.  Fujimura currently divides his time between Princeton, NJ studio and Pasadena, CA studio and serves as the Director of Culture Care Initiative at Fuller Theological Seminary.
