In this live event, co-curators Victor Wang and Sarah Vowles discuss the development of the exhibition, and the way it invites visitors to consider how modern China has engaged with the Italian Renaissance. They touch on the selection of Italian Renaissance Drawings, the themes chosen to arrange the exhibition, and their choice of contemporary Chinese artworks which reflect the continuing importance of these themes and principles. Above all, they reflect on the idea of ‘dialogue’, which has not only informed the works on display, but also reflects their working process in bringing together these remarkable pieces.
The session will be moderated by Rehana Mughal, our Director Arts, who will be joined by Nadja Race, Director of International Engagement at the British Museum. It is suitable for both art lovers and the arts professionals.
