> DESCRIPTION

The Chinese Culture Center (CCC) of San Francisco continues its annual Xian Rui (‘fresh’ and ‘sharp’) exhibition series with Orange Peel, Harbor Seal, Hyperreal, the first solo exhibition in the Bay Area of the work of critically-acclaimed American artist Adrian Wong. The six new sculptural works, created specifically for the exhibition, excavate the similarities and parallels between the present architecture and design of San Francisco’s Chinatown and that of Hong Kong circa 1970.

 

Adrian Wong works in a variety of media including installation, video, and sculpture, relying heavily on a research-based method to explore the intricacies of his relationship to his environment -- experientially, historically, culturally, and through the filter of fantastical or fictionalized narratives. He is based in Hong Kong, where he is the co-founder and director of Embassy Projects, an arts consultancy and independent production studio, as well as Los Angeles, where he teaches sculpture and critical theory at the University of California, Los Angeles. Recent exhibitions include the traveling exhibition Troglodyte See the Light, A Passion for Creation for the Louis Vuitton Fondation pour la Création, and the Hong Kong Sculpture Biennial. His videos have been screened internationally at the Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen, Bangkok Experimental Film Festival, LOOP Media Art Center,
