“Matter + Spirit” is composed of 55 works by 25 Chinese and American artists in a wide range of media and styles.
This exhibition is the product of a gathering of North American art professors with their Chinese counterparts in June 2018 in China sponsored by the Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity. Visiting artists’ enclaves and cultural sites in Beijing, Nanjing, and Shanghai, they considered issues of art, contemporary society, spirituality, and their role as culture makers, critics and seers. The works in this exhibition represent this encounter, its conversations and what was summoned by the artists’ interactions—with China, with the art scene there, and with each other.
A First Friday reception will take place at the gallery Sept. 2, 6-9 p.m.
The gallery is open Monday to Friday, 1 to 5 p.m.
