Join the HMAA’s Artist in Residence Irene Hsiao for a conversation and workshop developed from the process behind her project, IF THE SKY COULD DREAM. Attendees will explore the museum and the dragons exhibition through the lens of movement, improvisation, and imagination.

 

IF THE SKY COULD DREAM focuses on the Chinese dragon as a powerful being that fosters harmony. This creature is emblematic of China as well as a mythological being for many Asian and Western cultures and thus evokes a sense of mysticism, and intrigue in many communities. Representing the Chinese Dragon as a water deity, the installation series will feature images and projections of the weather and local bodies of water in Chicago.

 

If The Sky Could Dream is supported, in part, by a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant
