A Conversation with Mimi Gardner Gates and Xiaoze Xie
Talks & Lectures
The Dunhuang Foundation is a 501(c)(3)
nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation and preservation of the
Mogao Caves in Dunhuang, China – a UNESCO World Heritage Site of more than 700
Buddhist cave temples carved between the 4th and 14th
centuries. In addition to actively supporting scholars and artists, the
Foundation’s programming foregrounds Buddhism, the Silk Road, and cultural
heritage preservation. To mark the organization’s move to the Bay Area, noted
scholar and Foundation Chair Mimi Gardner Gates will speak with Stanford
Professor of Art Xiaoze Xie about Dunhuang’s history, importance to Silk Road
studies, and Xie’s work there as the Foundation’s first Artist-in-Residence.
Reception to follow.
