Special Arts Webinar | Studio Visit and Conversation with Artist Wang Qingsong
Translator: Banyi Huang, Columbia University
Wang Qingsong is a contemporary Chinese artist whose large-format photographs address the rapidly changing society of China.
Although he was trained as a painter, Wang began taking photographs in the 1990s as a way to better document the tension of cultural shifts and global change.
In 2018, community participants from Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor were brought together in Wang's collaborative art installation on land reform presented as an exhibition at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. In this webinar, we are invited to take a tour of Wang's latest exhibition, "On the Field of Hope," at Tang Contemporary, Beijing, followed by an insider's visit to his Beijing studio. Noted art journalist Barbara Pollack together with China correspondent & China Institute's vice president of programming, Dorinda Elliott, will provide a multi-faceted view of China today and the contemporary visual arts scene.
Registration is required. Please register for the Zoom seminar here: https://umich.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_XMq9X-i0RRCdr5IUM7GQSQ
