CHINA ART(S) TODAY: A conversation between Tan Dun and Wenda Gu

Wenda Gu.

Join us for an evening exploring contemporary Chinese arts with avant-garde artist Wenda Gu and award winning composer Tan Dun in conversation with Melissa Chiu, director of the Asia Society Museum. Two of China's most provocative and adventuresome artistic voices talk about their work and ponder future directions for themselves and for contemporary Chinese art(s). The very process of creating work has become increasingly fluid and complex and Chinese artists are working at the intersection of national identity and global culture. This Program is presented as part of the Carnegie Hall Festival Celebrating Chinese Culture, Ancient Paths Modern Voices. This program is made possible by The Kai-Yin Lo Distinguished Program Series which aims to create a platform to discuss the role of Asian arts and culture in contemporary society.
