Event description

Description

This event brings you Wei ZHEN, Vice Dean of the School of Art and Media, Beijing Normal University, and director of its art museum. A painter, art educator, art critic and art historian, Professor Zhen will be sharing his experience of art as ‘manifestation of the marching steps of human civilization’ and an inner dialogue between the ‘I’ and the ‘me’. As the title suggests, the lecture focuses on genre-by-genre comparison and contrast between Chinese ‘literati’ ink wash works and Western masters’ oil paintings, framed in the context of art history and presenting the audience with a visual panorama of art in the large and a visual scrutiny of our very own artistic identity in the small. The accompanying slideshow of diptychs is a poetic celebration of the very finest of fine arts, national and universal.

The Lecture will be delivered in Chinese.

Free, but advanced registration is requested.
