Artist’s talk at China Institute

Join China Institute in a thought-provoking discussion between artist Xuguang Liu, art critic Anthony Haden-Guest, and art historian and curator Zhijian Qian on Liu’s upcoming exhibition Dialogue with Arthur C. Danto at the WhiteBox Art Center.

Xuguang Liu completed his PhD at Beijing’s Tsinghua University with a “Theory of Essence Consciousness,” and subsequently he elaborated this concept during art study visits to Japan. His research was based on a single character from the oldest Chinese character tradition, marks of “bu” (卜) found on Chinese bone writing. On the basis of this character he created works, often using large sheets of rice paper, on which he drew a dense web of “bu” (卜) marks, drawn with oily earthy work ink and iron dust he made himself.
