No World: Artist Fang Lu in Conversation with Curator Herb Tam

Join us for a a conversation with artist Fang Lu and Herb Tam, curator and director of exhibitions at the Museum of Chinese in America. This program is presented as part of the 28 Chinese exhibition at the Asian Art Museum (June 5–August 16, 2015).

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 was organized in collaboration with the Chinese Cultural Center.
