This week’s Friday exhibition is “Journey through Mountains and Rivers: Chinese Landscapes Ancient and Modern,” which is at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art through April 28. The Nelson-Atkins has one of the world’s greatest collections of Chinese landscape painting, and the exhibition features many works from the Song and Yuan Dynaties (the 10th-14th centuries) as well as a major work by contemporary Chinese painter Xu Longsen: The Law of the Dao is its Being What it Is (2002-08). The fragile older paintings are only on view once every ten years. Exhibition curator Colin Mackenzie is featured on the second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast.
