Wednesday, October 7, 2020
6 – 7PM
Wang Qingsong is widely considered to be one of Asia’s most important photographic artists, whose large-format photographs address China’s rapidly changing society. Join us for an online tour of Wang’s recent exhibition, “On the Field of Hope,” at Tang Contemporary, Beijing, followed by an insider’s visit to his Beijing studio. Wang, who trained as a painter, began taking photographs in the 1990s as a way to document the tension of cultural shifts and global change. Wang will be joined in conversation with renowned art journalist Barbara Pollack, and Dorinda Elliott, Director of Programs at China Institute after brief remarks by Carol Stepanchuk–Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies, University of Michigan and Natsu Oyobe–Curator of Asian Art, Museum of Art, University of Michigan.
