Cross-Cultural Practice: Recent Works by Chinese Artists in New York

April 5 - May 2

The Humanities Department at New York City College of Technology, CUNY is proud to present “Cross-cultural Practice: Recent Works by Chinese Artists in New York,” curated by Dr. Zhijian Qian, Assistant Professor of Art History and scholar of Asian and Chinese art.

The exhibition features a group of Chinese artists who have been living and working in New York City since the 1980s and are known for their cross-cultural artistic practices. Employing a wide range of media, technology, methods, and approaches, their works demonstrate a multi-leveled investigation of themes such as tradition, self, identity, values and living conditions, as they relate to the highly cosmopolitan environment of New York. Exhibited artworks include sculpture, paintings in ink, oil, and acrylic, xuan paper assemblages and paper-cut collages, and also multi-media and interactive installations, video art, digital art, and live performance.

Featured artists:

Xiangdong Chen, Yihan Chen, Yuan Fang, Zhen Guo, Heizi, Weixian Jiang, Catherine Lan, Xiaofei Li, Yan Lin, Jing Lin, Shuishi Liu, Mei Lu, Biwei Niu, Chen Shen, Xin Song, Yang Wang & Zhenzhen Qi, Tao Wei, Jiannan Wu, Jin Xu, Weixin Xu, Lei Zhang, Wenzhi Zhang, Dodo Xinyu Zhang, Shiling Zhou, and Fengyi Zhu.
