Garden + Lecture Series: Christian Tagsold
This is a past event. Monday, April 29 at 4:30pm 6:00pm
Portland Japanese Garden 611 SW Kingston Ave, Portland, OR
The German author of Spaces in Translation: Japanese Gardens and the West discusses his provocative and groundbreaking theories that the idea of the Japanese garden has less to do with Japan’s history and traditions than with the country’s interactions with the West. Tagsold, who has researched over 80 Japanese gardens in 10 countries, explores their history, popularity and shifting aesthetic, as well as that most elusive concept — authenticity.
