IAP Film Screening Series: Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang
Join the MIT List Visual Arts Center for a screening of the documentary Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang directed by Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald.
This awe-inspiring film received a Sundance Grand Jury Prize nomination. The Chinese artist, Cai Guo-Qiang, tells us the true story behind Sky Ladder, a piece carried out in secret in a small Chinese fishing village under cover of night. In 2010, Cai Guo-Qiang’s Ring Stone was commissioned to celebrate the MIT Sloan School of Management’s educational and cultural ties with China. Learn more through a short presentation about Cai Guo-Qiang’s work and connection to MIT's campus prior to the film screening.
This winter, the List Center will be taking a deeper look at the lives and work of select artists within our Public Art Collection.
