DESCRIPTION

Zhang Dali, Ren Hong and a selection of local artists examine how history is constructed, distorted and consumed. Ren Hong takes historical imagery and overlays it with intricate patterns. Zhang Dali makes comparisons between original historical photographs and altered versions of those photographs published in magazines. Finally a group of local artists including Robert Davis, Ben Houge, Monika Lin, Ji Wenyu, Qian Rong and Su Chang, create newly commissioned works based on a selection of political posters culled from the past half century of history.
