ArtBreak: Wonder of China: Blue and White Porcelain

April 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for a screening of “Blue and White Porcelain,” an episode from the documentary series Wonder of China. Learn more about the history of the iconic blue-on-white ceramic style that has been admired, collected, and copied for centuries. Follow artists Lu Lyujun, Ye Jianxin, and Liao Zhidan as they demonstrate their own approaches to this art form, drawing from both centuries-old traditional methods and contemporary innovations. The episode concludes with a consideration of the classic art form in unconventional artistic settings, such as architectural design and fashion.

The Wonder of China series was produced by the China Broad View Cultural Communication Center in Beijing. This episode runs for 30 minutes and is captioned in English. Following the screening, stop by the Joy Light Gallery to view the blue and white porcelain pieces featured in the exhibition Kyungmi Shin: A Story to Finding Us. Selected by Shin, these works from the KIA’s permanent collection are thoughtfully displayed in conversation with her own collaged paintings and ceramics.
