Week One:
China and the World: Collaboration, Competition, Confrontation?

Under President Xi Jinping’s rule, the world’s most populous country has been working toward fulfilling the “China Dream” of global leadership, positioning itself inside a “superpower marathon” with the United States. Now, amid a trade war, the arrival of COVID-19 has been met with harsh rhetoric from both sides, further straining U.S.-China relations.
In this week of geopolitics, economics and cultural exploration, we consider China’s role in the world after COVID-19 and whether it emerges stronger or weaker politically and economically. How is it leveraging the pandemic in its recovery and in its efforts to overtake the U.S. as the global leader in technology, and how is the U.S. responding? Is China an unstoppable force or has it already peaked?

Interfaith Lecture Theme: 21st Century Religion in China: Collaboration, Competition, Confrontation?
China through the ages has given birth to religious expressions uniquely its own, while also absorbing and embracing multiple religious traditions and variations that have migrated from the Asian subcontinent and the West. In this week focusing on China, we look for its contemporary expressions of the religious impulse, or the suppression thereof.

Schedule:

1:00pm Co-Existence: Works by Cecile Chong, Jennifer Ling Datchuk, QiuChen Fan, and Cathy Lu

This exhibition examines cultural signifiers and the notion of hybridity in works by four contemporary artists of Chinese descent who live and work in the U.S. Their varied practices interrogate the histories and metaphors of everyday objects like dishware, vases, plants, and ping pong paddles...

Location: Strohl Art Center/Bellowe Family Gallery

1:00pm Counterbalance

Counterbalance features women working primarily in the media of Wood and Textiles, using a hybridized language of adornment and structure. Wood objects drape over corners and conform to the body, while textiles muscle in with bold color and rigid form.

Location: Strohl Art Center/Main Gallery

1:00pm Materials Redefined

This exhibition focuses on seven contemporary artists who work with their selected materials in non-traditional ways. The result will be a thought provoking, inspiring show of pieces that have not been seen before in Chautauqua.

Location: Fowler-Kellogg Art Center/First Floor Galleries and the Angela Fowler Memorial Gallery
