Photo Lecture – Secret Siam: The Hidden Art and Iconography of Thailand
Friday March 13, 7PM
Secret Siam: The Hidden Art and Iconography of Thailand
Brown Center, 320
Please join us for a heavily illustrated photo-lecture by filmmaker and photographer Mark Hejnar.
MICA, 1300 Mount Royal Avenue, Brown Center, 320. Free and open to the Public.
This lecture will give you insights into a culture rich in art, history, and pageantry. From religious folk-paintings to infernal torture sculptures, from half-buried gods in temple cave complexes to the spectral dolls who beckon from derelict spirit houses, Hejnar has captured a revelatory world of the marvelous and the monstrous, showing how Thailand’s religions, myths and art are inextricably bound together.
