Oxford day trip: Chinese women artists and Hannah Ryggen
November 30, 2017
Please join us for an outing to Oxford offering two events focusing on female artists: the painting of Modern Chinese Women at the Ashmolean Museum and Hannah Ryggen, a solo exhibition at Modern Art Oxford.
At 11:15, we will gather at the Ashmolean Museum for a viewing of selected ink paintings by Chinese female artists and hear visiting researcher Dr Michelle Huang from the Lingnan University, Hong Kong, discuss Tradition and Liberation: Expression of Thoughts and Feelings in the Ink Paintings of Modern Chinese Women Artists
12:30 - 2 pm, lunch at the Ashmolean. Afterwards, we will walk to Modern Art Oxford.
At 2:15, we will have a private curator led tour of the exhibition of Hannah Ryggen: Woven Histories. Ryggen (1894 – 1970) was a Scandinavian self-taught textile artist, renowned for her large-scale tapestries that focused on socio-political events.
