Reminder – Cai in conversation at NYPL

****UPDATE! (as of 2:26 pm EST Monday, October 29)

Due to chaos in nature and forces from unseen worlds (aka, Hurricane Sandy), the event and book signing at New York Public Library on Tuesday, October 30 will be canceled until further notice.  Stay tuned for more details and until then, stay dry!

 

For our friends in New York, just a reminder that Cai will be in conversation with art historian and former Cai Studio Project Director Lesley Ma at the New York Public Library on October 30.

In addition to an in-depth conversation, the free event will feature an audience Q&A and book signing of Cai Guo-Qiang: Ladder to the Sky.  The book beautifully documents his recent exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and includes narrations by the artist himself of his influences, thoughts, and inspirations found throughout his work.

More details here. 

And what is a save-the-date without a few images?
