Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint

with Jody Hojin Kimmel, Sensei

July 8, 2022

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed. A visionary and trailblazing figure who—inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her—began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, and strange works without precedent in painting.

Please join us on Friday July 8 for a screening of Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint, a documentary by Halina Dyrschka dedicated to af Klint’s life and art. We will begin with an optional period of zazen at 6:30pm. The screening will begin at 7:00pm, followed by a discussion with Hojin Sensei.

We strive to keep our retreat prices low and offer these programs by donation. This retreat is by donation, please pay what you can. It’s important that the dharma is available to everyone. Thank you for your continued support.

You must be fully vaccinated and masked to participate in this event.
