The painting process of Jiaqi Maria Ma ’17 is similar to the never-ending development of a city. Buildings and passages are created and erased, changed and layered, compositions and neighborhoods shift and mature. Similarly, her feelings for and memories of her hometown of Beijing have evolved as she distances herself geographically and chronologically. Her exhibition “(BEIJING)” consists of a series of five paintings based on her experiences of the the capital city of China. The opening and gallery talk celebrates the start of the 30th anniversary season of the College of East Asian Studies. There will be a gallery talk with Professor of Art Tula Telfair, and a luncheon buffet will be served. On display through Friday, December 8, 2017.
Date: Wednesday, September 20
Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery at Mansfield Freeman Center
