Visit Ink Art at The Met

Sleepless Wonderland, Yang Yongliang (2012) (larger res)

"....first major exhibition of Chinese contemporary art ever mounted by the Metropolitan...Featuring some seventy works by thirty-five artists in various media—paintings, calligraphy, photographs, woodblock prints, video, and sculpture—created during the past three decades, the exhibition is organized thematically into four parts: The Written Word, New Landscapes, Abstraction, and Beyond the Brush." [metmuseum.org] 

NYT Review

I'll be in the main lobby at 5:30; the nearest station is at 86th served by the 4, 5, and 6 lines. Looks like a neat exhibit, one that piqued my interest when it cropped up on the radar back in December. Check the linked review and official exhibition pages for more information and a sampling of the works -- see you then! =^]

    I am changing my reservation to "no" because it does not look like I will be finished making exams for end of the quarter. If I am, I will run over. I am nearby: my school is in the UES

    Good choice Tom! I went already and I highly recommend the group to check out the View of Tide piece. When you look closely, you'll notice its a protest. http://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/view?exhibitionId={2CCA0D[masked]AC7-9674-C4E4F675C08E}&oid=77548&pg=1&rpp=60&pos=33&ft=*

    The "Introduction to Square Word Calligraphy" is pretty cool too. You guys will enjoy!
