EKPHRASIS (orig. Greek: “ek” — out; “phrasis” — to speak) is the art of using words to describe something beautiful, usually visual art. EKPHRASTIC ASSIMILATIONS is an interactive project designed to bring together poets, artists and art-lovers of all kinds from China and the United States. The artworks were created by six Chinese and six American artists, many of them explicitly for this project. We invite you to follow these links to find the ekphrastic poems, written in either Chinese or English, behind each image. If so moved, please contribute your own poems to our Ekphrastic Assimilations project. All images and poems will be exhibited at the VALA Art Center in Redmond, WA, in partnership with ryan james fine arts.
