Indulge Your Love for Nature at This Exhibit Infused with Japanese Culture

The Visual and Dramatic Arts department at Rice University will be hosting Mexico City artist Agustín Estrada. His exhibition is titled, “Shizen: On the Art of Looking at Nature.”

The artist explains that, “the first word is the Japanese word for Nature, because it is not only about gardens but more about two Japanese phenomena related with the Art of looking at Nature with two particular concepts called ‘Hanami’ and ‘Momiji’ the first one related to flowers blooming in the early spring and the second one with the changing color of the leaves in autumn. Both clearly identified in Japanese culture.”

The department welcomes this photography exhibition as it’s a great opportunity to bring different people together to view, consider and talk about these images. Agustín has worked with photography and printing for over 40 years with the majority of his publications focusing on various cultures, so this is definitely an event you will not want to miss!
