Albums + Books: A New Dialogue, November 15, 2017-January 31, 2018
This group show in collaboration with the Sanshang Contemporary Art Museum in China will feature contemporary Chinese artists such as Xu Bing, Ding Yi and Wang Dongling as well as artists from outside the Chinese tradition who have adopted the traditional Chinese album or folding book as their medium and created their own art in all diverse ways. Over four dozen artists are taking part in the exhibition.
The exhibit opened with a symposium in the Chu Room on November 7. Co-curators Professors Yibing Huang of Connecticut College and Zhijian Qian of CUNY participated, together with Mr. Chen Zijin, Curator of Sanshang Contemporary Art Museum and Shen Chen, a New York-based Chinese artist.
