Exhibition Review: Salt Lake City
Contemporary Chinese Art at the Salt Lake Art Center
by Melissa Hempel
The Salt Lake Art Center invites you to sit and contemplate their current exhibition of contemporary Chinese art. In Displacement: The Three Gorges Dam and Contemporary Chinese Art four artists respond to the Three Gorges Dam project, a massive engineering feat that, while harnessing the Yangzi River to bring hydro-electric power to parts of China, has displaced over one million people and submerged over a thousand towns. Displacement is an exhibition that yearns to spend time with visitors, and, in turn for their patience, brings patrons through a journey of media, history and challenging views on social progress.
