Press Release

Stride Arts is delighted to celebrate September Asia Week with a reception on September 10, 2019 at our Manhattan gallery from 5 PM - 8 PM. Xiangdong Chen’s solo exhibition, The Infusion of Ink & Clay, has also been extended through the end of the month. 

 

Included as part of the evening’s events will be a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. Tea has a deep association with the East, which has been cultivated and consumed for over several millennia in China and all throughout Asia. Given its ubiquity in all types of settings - quotidian to formal - tea has greatly influenced the development of Chinese culture, and in particular its ceramic forms. Tea permeated all levels of society and was embraced by scholars, writers, artists and even was believed to embody certain spiritual beliefs in line with Confucian, Buddhist, and Taoist philosophies. The act of serving tea to another was understood to be a sign of great respect or humility, and certain pouring ceremonies were performed as celebrations during weddings. We are excited to present an opportunity for guests to experience a Chinese tea ceremony, a centuries-old tradition, and its subtle nuances firsthand.
