Billy Lee spent over two months in China this summer teaching the first postgraduate master class on abstract sculpture. He was the lead foreign professor invited by the China National Sculpture Magazine and China Sculpture Professional Committee who sponsored this program. Students were selected and hand picked by the committee from all over China, most of whom were faculty members from various art academies and universities. The course culminated with Billy signing and awarding students certificates of completion, and an exhibition of over seventy sculptures as well as a forum discussing the condition of contemporary sculpture and art education in China. It was a lively discussion, as his course attracted many faculty members from the surrounding universities and academies as well as artists, theorist and critics. He has been asked to write articles for publication for the sculpture magazine.
Whilst in Beijing, Billy was also invited to participate in an International Sculpture Exhibition “Blue Symphony”, which took place in the coastal city of NanDaihe, which is the summer residence of the Chinese government.
