Art Talk Live: Race and Gender in Heaven and Hell

Presented by Harvard Art Museums at Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge MA

May 24 2022
Art Talk Live: Race and Gender in Heaven and Hell

One of the Ten Kings of Hell, China, Ming dynasty, 15th–16th century. Hanging scroll; ink and colors on silk. Harvard Art Museums/Arthur M. Sackler Museum, Gift of Claudia Brown and Emily Rabiner in memory of Donald N. Rabiner and in honor of Robert D. Mowry, 2002.57.

This talk examines how gender and otherness are represented in a 15th- to 16th-century Chinese painting that presents visions of the afterlife.

This talk centers on One of the Ten Kings of Hell, a hanging scroll from Ming dynasty China (1368–1644) that will be on view in July. The discussion considers the unique vision of the afterlife presented in East Asian Buddhist art and sheds light on how gender and otherness have shaped these images of hell.

Led by:
Seung Hee Oh, graduate student intern, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art
