Description

This exhibition presents a focused look at caves and kilns, aka "earthly hollows," as symbolic and physical passages of transformation. Drawing from Cantor's rich collection of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean art, Earthly Hollows: Cave and Kiln Transformations examines the dynamic ways in which caves, be they mountain grottoes or kilns, tunnel-like chambers made of earth and clay, interface mundane and mystical realms.
