SIMON MA’S “HEART • WATER • INK”
Date: Saturday, July 12 2014 - Sunday, October 19 2014
Time: All Day
Location: Patricia & Phillip Frost Museum - FIU
The public is invited to an opening reception on Saturday, July 12, 5:00-8:00 p.m. featuring live freehand brushwork demonstrations by Mr. Ma. This new show follows the success of Ma’s previous world tours (“Ink • Brush • Heart,” shown at the Venice Biennale in 2013, and “The Soul – Drago + Cavallo”) with a return to his preferred subject of nature and his reverence of its power and majesty.
As part of the Miami leg of this world tour, Ma will present a seminar about Chinese water ink that will be open to the public and students. The exhibition also will feature an equine-themed short film “China Dream,” an homage to Master Xu Beihong (broadcast on National Geographic and Discovery), plus an equine-themed jewelry collection co-created with Chow Tai Fook.
