Exhibition of Printing & Publishing In Ancient China @ Javits Center

Yesterday I posted an item on contemporary Chinese art which was being shown in connection with the Book Expo America event over at the Javits Center. This year, China was the country of focus and this display was in the main hall and open to the general public along with one that showcased the techniques of printing and publishing in Ancient China. I’m rushing to get these two posts to your radar because they close quite soon (I think today and tomorrow are the remaining days) because while the larger BEA event is industry only, this part is come one, come all. Hopefully many of you readers can get over to the Javits Center and see this. There’s not much narrative discussion here and instead just images displaying on your favorite devices. Enjoy.

“The Revival Of Tradition” Contemporary Chinese Art @ Javits Center (5/27/2016)

Earlier today I attended the Book Expo America convention that was being held at the Javits Center and since the country of focus for this year was China, they had two special displays set up in the lobby of the convention hall. These were accessible to the general public because the larger BEA event is not. This first one was called “The Revival Of Tradition: Another Approach To Contemporary Chinese Art”. Since I had some time I wandered into the aisles and snapped photos for you all to enjoy. I won’t be saying much on this post and do have the names of the people behind what you will see coming up at the close of this narrative. Enjoy these beautiful works.

PiercingKen Goes On The Big Egg Hunt: Chapter Four

As I’ve said three times already, during the weeks leading up to Easter, the folks at Faberge set up a “Big Egg Hunt” all around the city and these works of art were not only fantastic to look at, but thanks to a downloadable app and a QR code, the folks in our fair Metropolis could scan the egg upon discovery and mark it as collected in their account. If they were the first to find an egg there would be prizes as well and that is pretty cool right? The exhibit ran all around the city from April 1st – 17th.

On April 18th, all of the eggs were gathered up and set up as a massive outdoor display in Rockefeller Center and since I was not able to hunt down any of the eggs in their original location figured that it would make a fun blog post for you to enjoy here on the Piercing Ken site. The way I did this was to shoot a photograph of each egg, and I apologize for not getting their names or the designer. This is the fourth and final chapter of my series that focused on this exhibit. Enjoy.
