Art over Lunch: Longing for NatureVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Guided Tour at the Museum Rietberg With Alexandra von Przychowski
Mountains and streams, trees and clouds have been at the heart of Chinese painting for a thousand years. They have become the epitome of Chinese art and culture and inspire artists to this day.
During this Art over Lunch curator Alexandra von Przychowski will introduce us to Chinese landscape painting, disclose its many meanings, and reveal its hidden messages. The exhibition provides insight into China’s culture, philosophy, and literature, while at the same time addressing a highly topical issue that transcends national boundaries, namely the relationship between humankind and nature.
The Museum Rietberg presents ninety works from six centuries, including paintings, installations, and video works. The dialogue between past and present reveals surprising links, but also ruptures and conflicts.

About Art over Lunch
Art over Lunch is a monthly event series for members of Asia Society Switzerland. Each time, we visit an exhibition or a special part of a collection with artists, curators and experts for 45 minutes followed by a small lunch. The tours are designed to give members a different view on the vast troves at the museums and galleries in the city of Zurich and provide an opportunity to mingle and discuss.
Art over Lunch is made possible with the support of Bergos Berenberg.
