Spotlight: Hot Pot
A new exhibition from Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, “Hot Pot” will explore contemporary artistic expression in China.
A hot pot is a communal dish of many ingredients in which each retains its distinctive flavors and textures. An integral part of Chinese culture for over 1,000 years, the hot pot serves as a metaphor.
The volume and diversity of art being produced in China today is enormous and in many ways resistant to categorization. The exhibition explores three themes: image and identity, environment and politics, and reinterpreting artistic traditions.
“Hot Pot” will feature more than 100 works in all media by two dozen artists, filling the museum’s six galleries and sculpture garden.
