Deng Guo Yuan artist talk
Nov. 16, 7 p.m., Hall of Languages 207
This winter, the Warehouse Gallery will highlight ink brush paintings by Tianjin-based Chinese artist Deng Guo Yuan. His work reveals the tradition of Chinese landscape painting and a profound knowledge of modern and international contemporary aesthetics. The film Deng Guo Yuan (2010) by French filmmaker Pierre Creton, to be presented in the Warehouse Gallery’s vault, meticulously documents the creation of
one of Deng Guo Yuan’s ink paintings in his Tianjin studio. Widely exhibited in China and Europe, this will be the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States. The show originated at the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts Museum (Tianjin, China), and then
traveled in modified form to the Samek Art Gallery at Bucknell University (Lewisburg, Pa.), to the Provenance Center (New London, Ct.), and to its last venue, the Warehouse Gallery, for which Deng will create additional site-specific works.
