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.

From London there are trains from both Paddington and Marylebone, in addition to a bus service via the Oxford Tube.  Contact Vicki Firth at vicki@firths.com should you wish to travel with other members and guests of UK Friends of NMWA.  You are very welcome.

Cost:  £15 per person -- travel and lunch to be self-funded.

RSVP to RSVP@UKFriendsofNMWA.org and kindly pay upon confirmation.
