Rock, Paper, Scissors: Chinese Art at the Crow Museum of Asian Art

October 14, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Inaugural Joy Light Annual Lecture in East Asian Art featuring Dr. Jacqueline Chao

 

Originating in China, “rock paper scissors” is a hand game used to fairly settle disputes or make decisions. Referencing the game of “rock paper scissors” as a playful metaphor,  Dr. Jacqueline Chao, Senior Curator of Asian Art at the Crow Museum of Asian Art will share her insights on Asian Art at her museum through rock (stunning jade collections), paper (intricate ink paintings), and scissors (contemporary installations that respond to their environments ). Boost your knowledge of these important artistic media and the intersections of “rock paper scissors” that can be found in both the KIA and the Crow Museum of Asian Art’s collections and exhibitions.
