Curatorial Assistant Emma Laube ’17 gives a talk on the exhibition "Zao Wou-Ki: Prints in Context," which she organized. Tea and cookies to follow.
Laube discusses works by the Beijing-born French artist, placing them in conversation with works by Franz Kline, Joan Miró, and Paul Klee. Zao is best known for his lyrically abstract oil paintings; a 1951 painting by Zao titled Landscape entered the AMAM collection in 1957. Laube’s exhibition includes two AMAM prints by Zao, which span 17 years of his long career. She highlights the mediums, techniques, and subject matter used by Zao and other modernists.
These free programs are presented on the second Tuesday of the month in the East Gallery. Tea and cookies follow each talk.
