Join the China Institute tomorrow for an immersive exploration into the captivating world of Peng Wei, an artist renowned for her unique approach to representing the diversity of female perspectives. This lecture is a key part of the lecture series for the China Institute’s contemporary art exhibition, showcasing the multifaceted nature of Chinese contemporary art and its dialogues with history and identity.
Moderated by Jane DeBevoise, the Chair Emeritus of Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong and Chair of Asia Art Archive in America in New York, their talk will delve into the multiple dimensions of Peng Wei’s art. Whether expansive or intimate, three-dimensional or flat, her work consistently centers around women. Rather than simply portraying real or fictional female figures, Peng Wei engages in a dynamic process of responding to and reshaping these representations.
This nuanced interplay between response and remodeling in Peng Wei’s art blurs the lines, demanding a closer look and deeper understanding. Join Jane and Peng Wei in this artistic exploration, where each piece is a dialogue, a story, and a celebration of women’s diverse experiences throughout history.
