Followed by a fireside chat with Dr. Yu Hu, Executive Dean, Tsinghua Institution for Culture and Creativity, Professor & Administrative Dean of Journalism and Communication, Tsinghua Universtiy.Light refreshments will be served from 5:00 pm.Xiaoze Xie will present his work-in-progress made during his artist residency in the summer of 2017 at the Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang, a historic site of Buddhist art on China's Silk Road. Xie's research-based project focuses on Cave 17, or the Library Cave, once a depository of manuscripts, scrolls, paintings and textiles dating from the 4th to the 11th century. The relics from the cave were bought, stolen and fragmented since the cave was discovered in 1900, and are now dispersed in collections around the world. Xie's long scroll of brush and ink drawings combines diagrams, calligraphy, and quoted images to cast his imaginations of the now empty cave, and to confront its history of loss, absence, and trauma. A work in its own right, the scroll also serves as a proposal for contemporary sculptures/installations to be realized in the future.Xiaoze Xie is the Paul L. & Phyllis Wattis Professor in Art at Stanford. He has exhibited extensively in the US and Asia. His work is in the permanent collection of such institutions as the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, San Jose Museum of Art and Oakland Museum of California.
