Marco Polo's Yangzhou: Was He Really a Governor There Under the Mongols? http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220424838?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220424838?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Saturday, Apr 30

Confucius Salon: Forum on Chinese Culture

************** 54th Session **************

The Forum on Chinese Culture of the Confucius Institute at UT Dallas is pleased to present its 54th session on an ancient Chinese city, of which Marco Polo claimed to have been a governor in his world-renowned book “Maro Polo’s Travels.” Yangzhou used to be China’s No. 1 center of economy, art, and culture for over a thousand years before it was replaced by Shanghai in modern times. Nowadays, Yangzhou is a tourist city known for its temples, gardens, cuisines, handicrafts, operas, calligraphy, painting, and other artistic forms. For this session, we have invited a guest speaker, who was born, grew up, and went to college in Yangzhou. Dandan Chen, a lecturer of foreign studies and Ph.D. candidate at Yangzhou University, will give a lecture and a power-point presentation on the history, cityscape, customs, art, and culture of Yangzhou as well as Marco Polo’s legendary relationship to the city. She will answer the question of whether Marco Polo was really appointed a governor of Yangzhou by Kublai Khan in the 13th century.  

Chinese Tea and Food Served

Free and Open to the Public

Reception and Panel Discussion
Friday, April 8th, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Curators:  Dr. Reynaldo Thompson, Marilyn Waligore

From the simulation of cells multiplying in a laboratory petri dish, to the creation of biocybernetic art objects functioning within the landscape, these artists affirm that our 21st century experience of nature has become forever transformed by the impact of science and technology. Our gardens at times appear fragile, positioned at the edge of industrial factories and highways, or enlisted in complex systems to generate our food supply. Yet new possibilities exist for the role of the machine within an ecosystem, through a fostering of symbiosis.

This exhibition is sponsored by the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Texas at Dallas, the University of Guanajuato, Salamanca, and the Bathhouse Cultural Center, Dallas, and is curated by Dr. Reynaldo Thompson, University of Guanajuato, Salamanca, and by Marilyn Waligore, Professor of Photography / Aesthetic Studies at UT Dallas. Artists in this exhibition include Jaime Bailleres, Twyla Bloxham, Gilberto Esparza, Bautista Vargas Gonzalo Gabriel, Mitzi Hallmark, Eric Keig, David Witherspoon, and Carlo Zinzi. Featuring artists from Guanajuato, Mexico, and Texas who affirm that our 21st century experience of nature has become forever transformed by the impact of science and technology.

Gallery Hours: Mon. - Fri., 9 a.m. - 10 p.m.; Sat., 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
