Join us for the opening reception for our new exhibition, Women我們!
WOMEN 我們 features video works, installation art, drawings, and paintings by a diverse array of female, male, and LGBTQ artists. The title refers to the Mandarin homophone of the word, WOMEN 我們, which translates to the pronoun, 'we.' The show evolved from a feminist exploration and expression as a point of departure for an examination of LGBTQ visuality, subjectivity, and identity in the visual culture of China.
Engaging with various issues regarding socially contested identities, this group show features 13 artists, including seven artists from China, two artist collectives, three NGOs in a social project, and five local artists. Several of the artists are of the post-1980s generation and signal a provocative break in the artistic creation from previous generations.
