"Remembering C.C. Wang"
Frank H. Yick Gallery
August 18 to December 19, 2005
As the second anniversary of his passing approaches, the Chinese Historical Society of America presents the first exhibition commemorating the vision of Wang Chi-ch'ien. C.C. Wang, a dedicated scholar of Chinese painting, was a celebrated teacher and a deeply respected connoisseur and collector. As an artist, Wang broadened the international audience for Chinese painting and its rich history, and made invaluable contributions to American appreciation of traditional ink painting. His intellectual and technical innovations merged the traditions of Chinese painting with the explorations of modern art in America like none before him.
Curated by Adam Mikos, the exhibition features works from private and public collection, and is funded by Grants for the Arts.
CONFERENCE PANEL (SESSION 6E):
"WHAT IS CHINESE AMERICAN ART?"
