Details

A MARCO POLO BRIDGE:
IAIN BAXTER : VENICE / SUZHOU / VANCOUVER

As the first European to have visited Suzhou (in 1276), Marco Polo was positioned to make the first "Occidental" report concerning the now world-famous classical Chinese garden traditions in that city.

From June 1 to November 30, 2013, as a link to crucially important Venice/Suzhou cross-cultural conjunctions, the Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden will be temporarily inflected by a changing series of  textual inscriptions - as introduced by visiting artist IAIN BAXTER& (in collaboration with guest research curators from CAUSA / Collective for Advanced and Unified Studies in the Visual Arts).
