World Science Festival Celebration
Artist’s talks in the exhibition Tales of Two Cities: New York & Beijing throughout the afternoon with Lin Yan, Wei Jia, and Michelle Fornabai. Talks are free with Museum admission and will begin just after the hour at the gallery entrance, and will last approximately 45 minutes.
“Watching Michelle Fornabai and Qin Feng communicate silently through the brush helped to open my mind to the myriad possibilities of visual dialogues between artists from very different artistic backgrounds,” Qing explains. “After discussing this idea with the other curators and advisors of this exhibition — Michelle Y. Loh, John Rajchman and Sarah McNaughton — a decision was made to expand on this theme by seeking out more opportunities to pair artists from disparate cultures.”
