JOURNEY TO THE WEST

Experimental
A meditation loosely based on the classical Chinese story by Wu Cheng’en, this groundbreaking new interpretation brings the legendary pilgrimage of a Buddhist monk into the present tense. Tsai Ming Liang bids us to look and listen, providing a timeless take on the spiritual journey of an individual in constant negotiation with the self and the substrate in which he finds himself. Journey to the West proposes that true enlightenment awaits those who endure.

In addition to its screening at SVA, Journey to the West will be screening as an installation in MoMA PS1's geodesic VW Dome.

April 24-26, Noon to 6:00pm
