An Evening with Linling Lu
You might know what Vivaldi’s Four Seasons: Winter sounds like—but what does it look like? The KIA’s Chief Curator, Rehema Barber, will join artist Linling Lu for an in-depth conversation about her artistic practice, which gives color, shape, and form to the music that plays in her studio while she works. Vivaldi is just one of her many musical muses.
Linling Lu: Musical Meditations, on view through June 5, contains a series of paintings created from 2019 to the present, many of which were composed during the two-year period of the ongoing pandemic. Lu views these works as a means of “healing from the chaos and uncertainty of life.” Her large, circular canvases pulsate with color and invite viewers to reflect on their own memories and connections with music, as well.
