About this Event

After three months of virtual Art over Lunch only, we are happy to meet again in Zurich for a tour through the Chinese Garden.

The Chinese Garden in Zurich belongs to the group of temple gardens – the most high-ranking type of Chinese gardens – and was a gift from Zurich's sister-city Kunming. It was opened in 1994 and is now operated by Grün Stadt Zürich. On our guided tour, we will look at the allocation of plants and their medical, artistic and symbolic significance, and the contextualisation of the landscaping and the buildings.

For this tour, we will be accompanied by Gabriela Blumer Kamp, whom we already know well from vivid art tours at the Museum Rietberg. Gabriela has been giving guided tours through the Chinese Garden for more than ten years.

Program

12:00 – Guided tour with Gabriela Blumer Kamp

We will meet at the entrance at 11:50.

The tour is limited to 20 people. There is enough space to keep social distance and face masks will be provided by Asia Society Switzerland.

This event is for Asia Society Members only. How to become a member?

Full no-show charge unless registration is cancelled until 24 hours before the event.

About the Guide

She grew up in Denmark, studied art history, ethnology and comparative religion in Lausanne and Geneva, and worked for „Ente Touristico“ in Ticino from 1995-1998 while writing on her PhD about the phenomenon of the „Madonna della Misericordia“ in Christian iconograhy.

About Art over Lunch

Art over Lunch is a monthly event series for members of Asia Society Switzerland. Each time, we visit an exhibition or a special part of a collection with artists, curators and experts for 45 minutes followed by a small lunch. The tours are designed to give members a different view on the vast troves at the museums and galleries in the city of Zurich and provide an opportunity to mingle and discuss. 

Art over Lunch is made possible with the support of Bergos Berenberg.
