Wellin Museum Opening Draws Crowd
Two exhibitions, Yun-Fei Ji: The Intimate Universe and Pure Pulp: Contemporary Artists Working in Paper at Dieu Donné, opened at the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art on Saturday, Feb. 6, to a large crowd.
Yun-Fei Ji: The Intimate Universe, curated by Wellin Museum Director Tracy Adler, will be open through July 2. Theexhibit is the Beijing-born artist’s largest solo exhibition to date in the United States, featuring a selection of work from 2006 to the present, including new scrolls, sculptures, and drawings never before exhibited.
Artist Yun-Fei Ji will lead a gallery walk-through of the exhibition on Wednesday, March 30 at 4:15 p.m.
Pure Pulp will be open until April 20. At Dieu Donné, a nonprofit organization based in New York City, the emphasis is on works in paper, meaning that paper is not a substrate but rather is the medium itself. This exhibition brings together artwork created in the Dieu Donné studio by 20 artists who have participated in the organization’s prestigious residency programs. The artworks range from intimate two-dimensional studies to large sculptural works, all made from a form of paper pulp.
Exhibition curator Bridget Donlon will lead a tour of Pure Pulp on Tuesday, March 8, at 4:15 p.m.
