    Focusing on paintings in Brush and Ink Reconsidered: Contemporary Chinese Landscapes, Robert D. Mowry, curator of the installation, and Hao Sheng, curator of Fresh Ink: Ten Takes on Chinese Tradition (at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston), will discuss directions explored by contemporary Chinese artists to update and revitalize the ancient tradition of Chinese ink painting, from fresh experiments with composition and brushwork to new techniques of applying ink.

    This series considers objects from more than one point of view. The informal talks, many of them by Harvard Art Museums curators, conservators, and educators and Harvard University faculty members, are designed to stimulate thinking about works of art and to encourage participants to explore their own ways of seeing.

    Free with the price of admission. Open to the public.

    Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
