Event Details

Join the Young Associates on July 19th for a tour of MoCA’s Oil & Water: Re-Interpreting Ink. This contemporary painting exhibition features work by three renowned Chinese artists: Qiu Deshu, Wei Jia, and Zhang Hongtu. Traditionally, ink is the primary medium for Chinese two-dimensional art, because it unites the three practices of calligraphy, poetry, and painting. Mixing elements from classical Chinese painting, modern shuimo, impressionism, abstract expressionism, and post modernism, Qiu Deshu, Wei Jia, and Zhang Hongtu find unique ways to express how art historical and cultural boundaries, while steeped in tradition, no longer serve to capture our syncretic, globalized way of life. This exhibition is guest curated by Michelle Y. Loh, who will be leading the tour.

Following the tour, please join us for dimsum at Red Egg, which is just across the street from MoCA. Red Egg has been praised for having “higher quality ingredients, fresher preparation, and more interesting flavors than at your typical dim sum restaurant.” It also offers fusion options that transcend categories of East and West, a fine conclusion to a boundary-breaking afternoon in the gallery!

1pm-2pm Exhibition tour (led by Michelle Y. Loh, guest curator)

2pm-4pm Dimsum at Red Egg

**Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite, for the tour only, or for the tour and dimsum. This event is for a maximum of 20 people—first come first serve!**
