This compelling exhibit features the work of Cang Xin, Huang Yan, Li Wei, Liu Ren, Ma Yanling, and Wu Yuren – all artists who use the human body as an entirely new art language. Some pieces, with the aid of digital imaging, illustrate a world that only exists within the artist’s imagination. Others, based on performance work where the artist uses his body as the central artistic agent, explore realities of China’s complex contemporary society. Some photos are humorous, others disconcerting, but all are fascinating reflections of life in China today.
The exhibition is organized and curated by Dr. Julie Segraves,
Executive Director of the Asian Art Coordinating Council, Denver, CO.
