Join us for a screening of Fang Lu’s No World (2014, single-channel video, sound, 17’52”), followed by a conversation with the artist and Herb Tam, curator and director of exhibitions at the Museum of Chinese in America. This program is presented as part of 28 Chinese.
Fang Lu’s practice raises questions about the process of image making, blurring the line between performance and reality. In her latest work, No World, six young protagonists reside in an empty house. Their daily activity is to rehearse the act of protest and to perform violent behavior without actual conflict. The image of struggle seamlessly transforms into an image of youth: free, rebellious and beautiful. The question remains—what is an image? How is it produced, mediated and consumed?
This event is organized in collaboration with the Chinese Cultural Center. On June 20, in conjunction with their exhibition Present Tense 2015, the Chinese Cultural Center will host a conversation between artist Fang Lu and current MFA students of Asian descent to discuss her experience after art school.
