A opening reception will be held at the East Asia Library for a new exhibition: Xiaoze Xie: Albums, Prints and Photographs

This exhibition features two intimate albums with ink drawings from the artist's travels, prints with images of books taken at libraries in China and Canada, and somber photographs suggesting burning of books. The subject, style and format of Xie's work resonate with the specific context of the site. On view Oct. 18, 2016 to Jan. 15, 2017.

Xiaoze Xie, the Paul L. & Phyllis Wattis Professor of Art at Stanford University, is an internationally recognized artist who has exhibited extensively in the US and abroad. 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. Xie received the Painter and Sculptor’s Grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation (2013), the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant (2003) and artist awards from Phoenix Art Museum (1999) and Dallas Museum of Art (1996).
