Richard Vine Discusses the Future of Chinese Contemporary Art
Thursday, February 11, 2010, 6:00 p.m.
Graham Auditorium
Walters Art Museum
600 N. Charles Street
Baltimore, MD

Managing Editor of Art in America Richard Vine will examine the exponential growth of contemporary art in China and its cultural impact during the Contemporary Museum’s New Art Dialogue Series lecture New China/New Art.

Vine will share experiences from his many trips to China and his close examination of the country’s rapidly evolving contemporary art scene. This new era of Asian contemporary art will be illustrated by Vine’s firsthand accounts with installations, exhibitions, and encounters with emerging artists. He will also review movements that have shaped contemporary art in post-Tiananmen China.

Admission to the lecture is $10 for the general public, $5 for students, and free for members of the Contemporary Museum and Walters Art Museum. Tickets will be available at the door.

The Contemporary’s New Art Dialogue Series presents lectures and conversations by distinguished artists, critics, art historians, and curators whose work is defining the field of contemporary art. The series cultivates critical discourse responsive to the cultural, social, and political issues of our time.

The New Art Dialogue Series is sponsored by the Louise D. and Morton J. Macks Family Foundation.
