To Move Mountains: Old Script and New Practices in Contemporary Chinese Art / Eugene Wang. The Vancouver Art Gallery is pleased to present Eugene Wang, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Professor of Asian Art at Harvard University, as the 14th annual Heller Lecturer. This illustrated lecture, To Move Mountains: Old Script and New Practices in Contemporary Chinese Art addresses the complex relationships that tradition and history have within contemporary Chinese art. Presented alongside Unscrolled: Reframing Tradition in Contemporary Chinese Art, it builds on the current exhibition’s key themes, with a fulsome discussion about how tradition is transformed through personal experiences, politics and contemporary art practices.
