Shaolin: Temple of Zen, Photographs by Justin Guariglia
February 2 – March 29, 2008

A photography exhibition based on the book of the same name by photographer Justin Guariglia published by Aperture that documents, for the first time in history, the exceptionally private warrior monks of the fifteen-hundred-year-old Shaolin Temple in the Henan province of China, renowned for its association with Zen Buddhism and martial arts. Comprised of 99 pieces, including 6 video installations, Shaolin: Temple of Zen brings to light the secretive society of the Chinese Buddhist sect dedicated to preserving a form of kung fu known as a "vehicle of Zen." Revealing the monks' devotional disciplines and capturing insightful portraits of the venerated warriors, the works offer an exclusive opportunity to explore the energy and spirit of Shaolin's unique practice.
