DESCRIPTION

Lessons on the Far East is a new project by artist Yan Xing presented in conjunction with the exhibition 28 Chinese. In the hopes of opening up a new mode of debate, Yan Xing has staged a compelling academic lecture that blurs the lines of reality and performance.

 Lessons on the Far East will take place under the auspices of the Honourable East India Institute (HEII). This institution is a new organization created by the artist, designed to explore ways of researching and reexamining various subjects in the field of East Asian Studies. In this unique and site-specific performance the artist will collaborate with two participating academics from leading institutions. He hopes that Lessons on the Far East will provide new avenues for deciphering and framing an emerging regionalism, and for presenting the insights thus gained to a global audience.
