UCLA Fowler Museum presents a lecture with guest curator Patrick Dowdey from the Mansfield Freeman Center for East Asian Studies.
Guest curator Patrick Dowdey, curator at the Mansfield Freeman Center for East Asian Studies and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Wesleyan University, offers a history of Derge and discusses the serendipitous survival of the nearly 300-hundred year old Derge Sutra Printing House and its importance to the people of this region of Eastern Tibet.
This talk, complemented by beautiful color photographs taken by Dowdey and collaborator Clifton Meador, is presented in conjunction with Pearl of the Snowlands: Tibetan Buddhist Printing from the Derge Parkhang.
