Songs of the Phoenix Mirror

December 10, 2016 - February 12, 2017

Songs of the Phoenix Mirror explores the full range and cultural significance of internationally renowned artist Wei Ligang’s current calligraphic practice. Through documents and archival footage, the exhibition reviews Wei’s artistic and intellectual development from the late 1980’s onwards. It surveys his major calligraphic styles: his signature “magic squares” and its variations; his monumental continuous cursive script inspired by Fu Shan (1607-1684) and other 17th-century masters; and his cursive renditions of the engraved lines of seals, steles, and Oracle bones.

Wei Ligang undertook his ACC Fellowship in 2006 in New York.
