Eight scholars will address different aspects of the life of Situ Panchen Chokyi Jungne (1700-1774), a remarkable individual who greatly influenced the painting, literary arts, and medicine of 18th-century Tibet. This brilliant polymath was also the charismatic leader of the Karma Kagyu sect during a particularly volatile period in Tibetan history and the senior court chaplain during the golden age of the culturally significant Kingdom of Derge.
The symposium marks the opening of Patron and Painter: Situ Panchen and the Revival of the Encampment Style.
