Ink Dialogues with Qin Feng and Michelle Fornabai, is on exhibit at the Bruce Museum. The exhibition “Tales of Two Cities: New York & Beijing, focuses on two of the world’s leading centers of art, New York and Beijing, and offers a visual pairing of five New York-based artists with five Beijing-based artists. The 10 artists have been engaged in different global, cross-cultural, artistic dialogues over the course of two years via email, Skype, and in-person meetings.
“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.”
