Lecture: Here Meets There in Contemporary Art

The Transcultural Art of Zhang Hongtu and Michael Cherney
Lecture by Jerome Silbergeld, PhD

Join the Portland Art Museum for a lecture by Jerome Silbergeled on Zhang Hongtu and Michael Cherney. Hongtu is a Chinese-born painter and installation artist who makes America his home. Cherney (also known as Qiu Mai) is an America-born photographer and calligrapher living in China. This talk examines how these two prominent contemporary artists not only combine aspects of East and West but also reach deep into China’s cultural past for the basis of their own very modern art.

Dr. Silbergeled is the P. Y. and Kinmay W. Tang Professor of Chinese Art History, Emeritus and Director Emeritus of the Tang Center for East Asian Art at Princeton University.
