In Conversation: Xu Bing and Jerry Yang with Jay Xu

This conversation celebrates the opening of the exhibition Out of Character: Decoding Chinese Calligraphy (on view at the Asian Art Museum from October 5, 2012–January 13, 2013). It explores the overlapping interests of internationally recognized contemporary artist Xu Bing and Jerry Yang, a passionate collector and practitioner of Chinese calligraphy. The museum’s director, Dr. Jay Xu, moderates the discussion, focusing on the new artwork by Xu Bing commissioned for the exhibition, along with masterpiece artworks from Jerry Yang’s collection.
