5:00 pm - 5:45 pm
Duke University Chapel Choir

This opening reception for the exhibition "Transcendence + Immanence" will include light refreshments and music from the Duke Chapel Choir. Admission is free.

Duke Chapel and Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts are presenting "Transcendence + Immanence," an exhibition of ink wash paintings by the Chinese poet, painter, and critic DaoZi. Also known as Wang Min, DaoZi works in a style called "sacred ink wash painting" through which he combines traditional Chinese ink painting techniques and materials with themes infused with his Christian faith. In "Transcendence + Immanence," the artist uses the technique of ink wash painting to call for redemption, criticize darkness, and point to a spiritual world of universal values. The installation, on display at Duke Chapel from October 20 to November 26, is the exhibition's premiere in the United States.
