Contemporary Chinese Brush Painting by Michael Goedhuis

For the last 20 years, Michael Goedhuis has been at the forefront of the popularization of contemporary Chinese art. Goedhuis will examine that tradition, its relevance today, and how new works can be combined with ancient material. Goedhuis has held many exhibitions on the new Chinese brush painters, most recently at the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2013.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15 | 4:00PM
Collecting your own Hermitage Museum by Alexander Kruglov, Ph.D.

Alexander will talk about about the collectors interests of Catherine the Great, the beginning of the Hermitage Museum collection of antiquities, and what masterpieces of ancient art can be found on today’s art and antiquities market.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 16 | 2:30PM
Wendy Maruyama: Art + Design as Advocacy

Wendy Maruyama has been making furniture/art since 1970. Her work is often inspired by extended residencies and visits to various countries such as France, England, Japan, Korea and China. Born in Colorado to second-generation Japanese American parents, her work vaccilates between creating works that emulate and satirize contemporary Japan, among other cultures. Her newest work, “Executive Order 9066”, is influenced by personal and family history and addresses the internment of 120,000 Japanese Americans in 1942.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17 | 2:30PM
DISCOVERING AN ANCIENT CULTURE THROUGH THE CONTEMPORARY ART MOVEMENT OF AUSTRALIA’S ABORIGINAL PEOPLE BY JENNIFER GUERRINI MARALDI

The relatively recent development and market prominence of contemporary indigenous painting and sculpture had been making news throughout Australia, but was little known in the UK. While travelling in Australian in the early 1990’s, Jennifer and her husband, purchased a major work by Freddie Timms “Sugar Bag,” (acrylic on canvas, 180 x 230 cm) painted during Freddie’s time working with Frank Watters (Watters Gallery) in Sydney in the late 1990’s.

Living with this magical painting in their collection was the single catalyst for her to begin exhibiting and selling contemporary art in London in the new millennium.

Jennifer travels to Australia each year visiting remote indigenous communities as well as seeing old friends including curators, collectors and artists. Her work in the United Kingdom aims to establish a greater awareness of the best indigenous work and contribute to building a stronger market for ethically sourced, contemporary Australian indigenous, fine art.
