I wish to drink tea with you
BARBARA DAVIS GALLERY
Tuesdays – Saturdays
Meanwhile, I have been teaching Chinese painting at the Continuing Study School at Rice University, and at a recent class I told my students that Chinese brush strokes were aligned with inhaling and exhaling, and should be as easy as sipping a cup of tea! This is the very Zen moment I had been waiting for...this instant realized an idea to drink tea at the B/W space. I designed a whole tea-set for the space. I also named the teatime as 255 - 0 + Tea. 255 and 0 are RGB digital number, they are the codes for 100% white and 100% black. On white teacups have the number 0, and the black teacups have the number 255. The numbers often incorporated the conversational main subject, leaded me and my teaguests into discussion about CHANGE. By the end of the teatime, people would realize the installation is not about B/W, it's a Taichi Tea, it's about Yin/Yang.
Over the last five years, 255-0+Tea, the interactive installation, has traveled to Dali (China), NYC, Milan (Italy) and Portland, OR. I've even received a private commission to do the Teatime for a Houston local art collector. I am so excited that Barbara Davis, my 2nd teaguest five years ago, is going to install my Tearoom at her gallery space in July 14 - Aug 11, 2007.
I am looking forward to have tea with you all, or at least for you to share the teatime with me and the rest of the teaguests on my website www.weihong.org at the installations section.
Tea tastes much better with you.

Weihong: 255 - 0 + Tea
July 14 - August 11, 2007
Teatime with Weihong: Fridays – Saturdays from July 14 – August 11, 12:00pm-3:00pm
Barbara Davis Gallery, in conjunction with ArtHouston and the upcoming Museum of Fine Arts Houston’s Red Hot-Asian Art Today from the Chaney Family Collection, is pleased to announce internationally known Chinese artists Weihong, Li Wei and Huang Yan. These artists present a discourse on traditional Chinese culture within contemporary society.
Internationally known Chinese-born, Houston-based artist Weihong seeks to convey her traditional Chinese heritage and philosophy to urban society through the simple ritual of teatime. Since 2002, Weihong has brought her 255 – 0 + Tea to Milan, New York, Portland, and Dali, China, taking tea with notable participants such as founding director of the Menil Collection, Walter Hopps, designer, Giorgio Armani, and editor of Art in America, Richard Vine. In her installation at Barbara Davis Gallery, she will be creating a black and white “tearoom”. Her tearoom is an interactive installation that serves as the setting to engage her guests, while serving tea, in an ongoing discussion about the nature of balance referencing the idea of the yin and the yang. The involvement of the viewer will be a profound experience by becoming part of the piece.
Beijing based artist Li Wei’s first significant public exposure was at the Third Shanghai Biennale in 2000. Over the past six years, his works have been featured on the covers of a number of prestigious journals including Flash Arts, NY Arts and Contemporary magazine. He has exhibited his series of performance photographs internationally, with solo shows in Italy, France, Australia, Japan, China, England and the U.S.
Globally renowned artist, Huang Yan, born in Jilin Province, China, makes his Houston debut at Barbara Davis Gallery. He is a photographer and performance artist who graduated from the Changchun Normal Academy. His work is included in the Red Hot exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and has been included in many international shows; Art Casoria Contemporary Art Museum, in Casoria, Italy, Museum of Contemporary Art, Marseille, Seattle Art Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Sao Paulo Biennale, Prague Biennale, Polish International Video Art Festival, Warsaw, Israeli International Image Biennial, Chengdu Museum of Contemporary Art, Chengdu, China, and the Guangdong Museum of Fine Arts, China. Yan’s work conflates aspects of China’s rich traditional art with contemporary global art practices. His photos depict traditional Chinese landscapes covering the body, redefining landscape and referencing subjects such as the human body and nature. The artist states that “landscape is an abode in which my mortal body can reside, landscape is my rejection of worldly wrangling, landscape is a release for my Buddhist ideas.”
