A mystical world in the distance, clouded only by the limits of our imagination and plane ticket prices…artistic genius…

These things seem o far and unreachable for us.

But they’re not.

On Thursday for free, you can come hear acclaimed artist Xu Bing speak about his career and the current exhibition of Book from the Sky.
