To kick off the new year, on January 8, artist Guo Jian will join us in a conversational interview with Luise Guest, White Rabbit’s Education Director. Expelled from China and now living in Sydney, Guo Jian has some fascinating—and horrifying—stories to tell, about growing up during the Cultural Revolution, his time as a PLA soldier during the war with Vietnam, his participation in the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, his experience with government censors and police, the destruction of the Chinese countryside, and the social role of the artist in China. Refreshments will be served. Since places are limited, please arrive by 1.50 p.m. to secure your seat.
When: Second Sunday of every month, 2 p.m.
Where: Library, 3rd floor
How much: FREE
