This exhibit is the result of a cross-cultural artistic collaboration that began between Danish papercutting artist Bit Vejle and fine arts professor Xiaoguang Qiao during a strained period in the early to mid 2010s for Sino-Norwegian diplomatic relations. The pair explore their respective culture's approach to papercutting (which is thought to have originated in China over 1,500 years ago) and chose the dragon, a common motif in both Nordic and Chinese art, to compare and contrast techniques. Opening day (Thurs Oct 28) will include a virtual artist talk with Bit Vejle.
