Shomyo No Kai: Buddhist Ritual Chant – Moonlight Mantra

Concert premieres at 7 pm CDT on Tuesday, March 30 and will be available until 7 pm CDT on Friday, April 30.

Described as meditative and sublime, the Buddhist form of ritual chant known as shomyo is one of the oldest living forms of vocal music. Shomyo no Kai, a chorus of two dozen priests from the Shingon and Tendai sects of Japanese Buddhism, sets ancient shomyo against the backdrop of An'yo-in Temple, one of the oldest standing temples in Tokyo's Itabashi Ward, offering moments of reflection and relaxation in a turbulent year. Before the concert, musicologist Steven G. Nelson, Professor at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, shares the history and practice of Shomyo, and after, the head monks of the Shingon and Tendai Buddhist sects host a live Q&A.

Presented in partnership with Japan Society, and with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Center for East Asian Studies Title VI National Resource Center Grant from the U.S. Department of Education, International House at the University of Chicago, and Rockefeller Memorial Chapel.

Starts: March 30, 2021
Ends: April 30, 2021
Time: 7:00 PM

Apr 8: Lust, Love, and Loss in Renaissance Europe

Passion, violence, and virtue emerge in this exhibition as fundamental, intertwined elements in the artworks of Renaissance Europe.

Organized by the Feitler Center for Academic Inquiry at the University of Chicago’s Smart Museum of Art, "Lust, Love, and Loss in Renaissance Europe" features more than 40 paintings, prints, sculptures, and luxury wares. These artworks played an essential role in intimate, familial experiences, while also shaping and responding to massive intellectual, political, and religious shifts throughout Europe between 1400 and 1700. Together, the works illuminate the many ways that Renaissance objects lay at the heart of public rituals and individual relationships, offering insights into the social, sexual, cultural, and visual experiences of their audiences.

Organized by the Feitler Center for Academic Inquiry, this exhibition is curated by Nora S. Lambert, Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow at the Smart Museum of Art, and Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Art History at the University of Chicago.

Support for this exhibition has been provided by the Smart Museum’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Endowment, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, Mary Smart and the Smart Family Foundation of New York, and the Feitler Center for Academic Inquiry Fund.

Presented in the Janis Kanter and Thomas McCormick Gallery and the Edward A. and Inge Maser Gallery.
