poster for "How Chinese" Reception and Discussion

This event has ended.

"How Chinese," curated by Aileen June Wang and Eric Jiaju Lee, expands the current notion of contemporary Chinese art, defined by the most popular movements of Political Pop and Cynical Realism. The featured artists represent the Chinese diaspora and beyond, and their works reflect the intriguing confluence of Chinese and non-Chinese cultures in their lives. This exhibit seeks to start a lively conversation about art and identity, and the role of cultural memory in artistic creativity. Panel discussion by art critic Jonathan Goodman, the curators, and artists: Lishan Chang, Eric Jiaju Lee, Tenzin Phuntsog, Lisa Ross, Shen Chen, Yuh-Shioh Wong.
