Chinese Calligraphy: Not Just a Visual Art

Asian Art Association and Curator’s Circle Lecture Series

Among all Chinese arts, calligraphy stands out as the most unique visual representation of Chinese philosophy and aesthetic taste. An excellent calligraphy is not just a piece of beautiful visual art; it is also a reflection of the artist’s interpretation of a belief or a philosophical concept.

In this presentation, Chinese calligrapher Harrison Xinshi Tu will elaborate on contemporary Chinese calligraphy through his artistic journey, as well as introduce the DAM’s collection of his arts which are on display in the gallery.

Lecture group will visit the Asian gallery with Mr. Tu. Non-DAM members must purchase a general admission ticket as well as a lecture ticket.

Doors open at 11:30 am.

Tickets are free for Asian Art Association members; $5 for teachers, students, and docents; $7 for DAM members; and $10 for others.
