ARTbreak: Encounter

January 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Leilei Chen and Beibei Chen are artists, educators, and twin sisters from China. Their collaborative work is heavily influenced by Chinese culture, aesthetics, and philosophy; they have always been interested in engaging with environmental and cultural issues through ceramics and painting.

Their work, Gaia I, is in the KIA permanent collection and will be on view in Vistas: Visions of China, Japan, and Korea. They will discuss both this work and others as they discuss their artistic philosophy on landscapes and environmental concerns.

We are offering both in-person and virtual tickets for this ARTbreak. Please RSVP accordingly.
