Explore how contemporary art from China is influenced by the rapidly changing cultural and socioeconomic landscape, and how contemporary artists interact with or react to traditional Chinese art.
Panelists are renowned artist Xu Bing, whose works are on view in Mahjong: Contemporary Chinese Art from the Sigg Collection; Barbara Pollock, author of The Chinese Art Explosion (Art News, September 2008); and Jerome Silbergeld, the P.Y. and Kinmay W. Tang Professor of Chinese Art History at Princeton University; Nancy Berliner, curator of Chinese Art at the Peabody Essex Museum. Trevor Smith, curator of Contemporary Art at the Peabody Essex Museum, moderates the discussion.The event starts at 2pm. Oh and for those of you that haven't heard of Xu Bing. Take a close look at the image in the upper corner. It kinda looks like chinese characters, but they're actually conspicuously arranged English letters. It says "Xu Bing."
