Word and Meaning: Six Contemporary Chinese Artists

Mar 31 - Jun 30 2000

UB Art Gallery

Chinese art has been intimately tied to the written word. Word and Meaning is comprised of ten artworks in diverse media and presentational forms (painting, calligraphy, sculpture, video, and site-specific installations) by six contemporary Chinese artists who are currently working in the United States, Canada, and Taiwan. The artists share a postmodern and international artistic vocabulary, and exhibit often in European or American museum contexts.

Artists: Xu Bing, Wenda Gu, Zhang Hongtu, Wenyi Hou, Tsong Pu and Shengtian Zheng.

Curated by Kuiyi Shen.

55-page catalogue available with essays by Shen, Julia F. Andrews and Chang Tsong-Zung.

This exhibition was sponsored by the Asian Studies Program, with support from a Title VI grant, United States Department of Education, the Office of the Dean of the college of Arts and Sciences, and the UB Art Gallery, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
