forest of stone steles: retranslation and rewriting tang dynasty poetry
Temporary Exhibitions, Friends and Cheatham Galleries
The Hood Museum of Art and Dartmouth College Library present a two-part installation and exhibition by avant-garde Chinese artist Wenda Gu. Part of his ongoing global united nations hair monuments project, the green house and united colors comprise a massive sculpture created from hair collected in 2006 from thousands of Dartmouth College students, faculty, and staff and Upper Connecticut River Valley community members. Wenda Gu's hair sculptures grow from his dream that through his art he might unite humanity and encourage international understanding. An exhibition of the artist's recent works on paper is presented concurrently in the Hood's galleries.
Organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, in partnership with the Dartmouth College Library, and generously funded by a grant from the LEF Foundation, the William B. Jaffe and Evelyn A. Hall Fund, the Eleanor Smith Fund, and the George O. Southwick 1957 Memorial Fund.
