DESCRIPTION

In anticipation of the museum’s forthcoming exhibition centered on A Guided Tour of Hell, scheduled to open in 2018, we welcome author Samuel Bercholz and artist Pema Namdol Thaye. The pair recently completed a graphic novel that acco­­unts Bercholz’s two near-death experiences — one of which, he says, plunged him into the Hell realm as understood in Buddhist cosmology. The conversation will be moderated by Jeffrey Durham, assistant curator of Himalayan art.
