John Tarrant’s talk is an integral part of the genre-defying art exhibition “koan” 
opening May 13 at iartcolony — through text, video, performance, sculpture, photography and painting, eight conceptual, Boston-based Alumni from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts examine the dynamics between koan study and the creative process — taking inspiration from John’s seminal work “bring me the rhinoceros, and other zen koans that will save your life.”
“koan” opens May 13th at iartcolony — 42 Broadway, Rockport, MA, 978-764-5495


“Every life is full of koans, and yet you can’t learn from a book how to understand them. You need someone to put you in the right frame of mind to see the puzzles and paradoxes of your experience. With intelligence, humor, and steady deep reflection, John Tarrant does this as no one has done it before. This book could take you to a different and important level of experience. “
—Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul
