CSUN Exhibit Explores Modern China Through Art
At California State University Northridge’s art galleries, a new exhibit will showcase the work of two Chinese artists exploring the notions of urbanization and modernization of their country, according to a statement released by the university.
The artists, Chen Qiulin and Fen Weng, will showcase over 40 pieces of photographic and video art. Curated by Northridge assistant professor of art history Meiqin Wang, the exhibit will run from Aug. 29, and runs through Oct. 8.
Speaking about the ideas that inspired her work for this show, Qiulin said that “My hometown has become a construction site; or maybe it is just the smallest epitome of the urbanization process that all cities in China are going through."
Tales of Our Time: Two Contemporary Artists of China will also feature a curator talk on Monday, September 12 at 10:00 a.m., and an artist lecture on Wednesday, September 14 at 11:00 a.m.
