Curators: Faustino Quintanilla, Luchia Meihua Lee

Reclaiming the Vision presents a unified view of the interconnected segments of society and the physical environment in which it functions. This is accomplished by exhibiting CC Yang’s work related to politics, religion, art history, the environment, and global harmony. Starting in 2013, Yang has carefully planned a daring performance project named Watch Us! Together We Can do It for which he is seeking patronship. Collecting any object in this exhibition will go towards supporting Watch Us! Together We Can do It. We request your loving contribution to enable Yang’s dream. Taken as a whole, this work articulates Yang’s vision of a world towards which we can strive.

Plans call for Yang to a climb a 300-foot rope ladder attached to a helicopter or blimp, which ascent will be steadied by 230 collaborators – one from each nation on earth. When he reaches the apex, his fellow performers, each holding a unique brightly-colored LED strand, will power on a gigantic artwork illuminating the darkness. Unified in Yang’s version of an interconnected world, these 230 individuals will serve as role models, as a micro-level spiritual force intended to create macro-level worldwide harmony.
