Docent led tour at China Institute Gallery – Art of the Mountain, Wednesday, July 10, 6:00 PM

Enjoy a private docent led tour of the exhibition: Art of the Mountain at The China Institute Gallery. This event will be hosted by China Institute Trustee Yvonne Wong ’62, and we will be greeted by Gallery Director Ms. Willow Hai before our tour. The beautiful exhibition explores how mountains have played a crucial role in Chinese culture and legends; they are considered to be the pillars that hold up the sky. This exhibit, which displays more than 60 photographs by 25-odd photographers, is split into three sections: Lofty Mountains covers the geography, history, legends and cultures associated with famous Chinese mountains; Pure Sound encompasses the impact of Chinese landscape painting on contemporary photography; and New Landscape Photography expands beyond photography to post-photographic visual effects that examine the role of mountains in society.
