“Cross-Strait Relations” | “两岸关系”

  • Location:
    Sheila C. Johnson Design Center - Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery, 2 West 13th Street, New York, New York

“Cross-Strait Relations” | “两岸关系” uses a diverse range of—videos, photographs, installations, sound art, and performance— to explore the pluralism of Chinese identity. By reexamining that identity, both geographically and culturally, these works cast the term ‘cross-strait relations,’ a commonly used phrase that points to the fraught relationship between China and Taiwan, in a new light. Works featured in the show are by Heman Chong, Lee Kit, Michael Lin, Charwei Tsai, Hong-kai Wang, and Hu Yun. A site-specific window installation by Lin will contribute to the drama of the gallery’s frontage and filter street views. Curated by Arthur Ou, an artist and assistant professor of Photography at Parsons The New School for Design.
