Programs and Tours
In Conversation with Chen Limin
Chen Limin—one of the youngest artists in the current exhibition of Chinese contemporary woodblock prints and one of two women printmakers represented—will talk about her work as a painter and printmaker, as well as the challenges and opportunities for women pursuing careers as artists in China today. This informal program will also offer the opportunity for facilitated conversation between the artist and the audience. Participants are invited to attend a reception with Chen Limin immediately following this program.
Born in Hangzhou, China, Chen Limin was educated in China and France, where she now resides. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions in China and Europe. Multiple Impressions: Chinese Contemporary Woodblock Prints is the first showing of this work and her first US exhibition.
This event is cosponsored by the UM Center for the Education of Women with the support of the CEW Frances and Sydney Lewis Visiting Leaders Fund and presented with assistance from the UM Center for Chinese Studies, Institute for Research on Women and Gender, and the Department of Women’s Studies.
Multiple Impressions was organized by the University of Michigan Museum of Art with the cooperation and support of the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, China. It is made possible in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Henry Luce Foundation, the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, and the University of Michigan Center for Chinese Studies, Confucius Institute, and Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
