London Calling — November Target First Saturday at Brooklyn Museum

Nov 1 is the first Saturday of the month and one day before the election. Naturally there is a documentary featuring topics related to election.

My favorite pick is Artist Jesper Just discusses the exhibition at 8PM. I can foresee the competition for 30 tickets will be fierce. But if you can make it, go to Brooklyn Museum at 7 and watch a few of his short movies before joining the discussion with him at 8PM. That sounds a perfect plan.

About Hui

Wang Hui lived from 1632 - 1717 and followed in the footprints of his great grandfathers, grandfather, father and uncles and learned painting at a very early age. He was later taught by two contemporary masters, Zhang Ke and Wang Shimin, who taught him to work in the tradition of copying famous Chinese paintings. This is most likely the reason why critics claim that his work is conservative and reflects the Yuan and Song traditions. One critic claimed that "his landscape paintings reflect his nostalgic attachment to classical Chinese aesthetics. Along with the other Wangs, Wang Hui helped to perpetuate the tradition of copying the ancient masters rather than creating original work.
