Chinese Traditions Now: Bingyi, Zheng Chongbin, and Sun Xun

Thursday, October 24, 2019

7–9 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Celebrate the much-anticipated reopening of our Arts of China galleries with a conversation among artists Bingyi, Zheng Chongbin, and Sun Xun, all of whom are featured in the collection of contemporary Chinese paintings. The artists discuss the ways in which they engage with pre-modern Chinese artistic traditions to honor the past while innovating for the future, and explore current questions around climate change, global media, and cultural memory. The conversation is moderated by Susan L. Beningson, Assistant Curator of Asian Art, Brooklyn Museum, and Jane DeBevoise, Chair of the Board of Directors, Asia Art Archive.

Tickets are $16 and include Museum general admission (purchase tickets for Pierre Cardin separately). Members receive complimentary tickets. Not a Member? Join today!
