Can Chinese calligraphy, a medium developed several thousand years ago, play a role in our modern life? Can Chinese calligraphy, a distinctive cultural form, have its niche in our globalized world? This lecture will explore these questions through Grace Yang-Tze Tong?s calligraphic works, with special attention to their tie with Abstract Expressionism, an art movement flourishing in New York.
