Stride Arts is delighted to present an intimate pop-up exhibition of Xiangdong Chen’s porcelain works at the East Hampton TV Festival on July 23rd, 2019. In celebration of the First Annual East Hampton TV Festival, Stride showcased several of Xiangdong Chen’s porcelain works among works by other contemporary artists at the historic Guild Hall’s Green Room. The works, selected from “The Infusion of Ink & Clay,” highlight Chen’s unique practice of being one of the first to master the combination of colored ink and porcelain, for which he won much acclaim in China. The EHTVF was founded by Robert Rizzo, who also founded the New York City International Film Festival and the New York City TV Festival. EHTVF was created to provide a platform for the thriving cultural community developing in East Hampton and the surrounding areas of Eastern Long Island.
