This talk centers on One of the Ten Kings of Hell from the Ming dynasty (1368–1644) China, which will be on view at Gallery 2740 in June. The discussion aims to shed light on how gender and a sense of otherness have shaped the images of hell in the context of the unique vision of the afterlife presented in East Asian Buddhist art.
