STRONGER TOGETHER - MELDING CULTURAL IDIOMS
STRONGER TOGETHER - MELDING CULTURAL IDIOMS focuses on the work of two western artists, ROY LICHTENSTEIN and ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG, both of whom created their final projects by re-examining an earlier allure for Chinese artistic expression and translating this affinity into their own unique idioms. The exhibition consists of three very large works, one by Lichtenstein titled Landscape with Poet (1996) and two by Rauschenberg titled Lotus III and Lotus V (from the Lotus Series, 2008). And on the eastern wall, hanging scrolls in Square Word Calligraphy by XU BING (b. 1955), whose creative genius is rooted in bringing the world-east and west, rich and poor, young and old-closer together.
