As China reaches its post-boom years, Steven Harris, exhibition curator from Shanghai’s M97 Gallery, suggests a more contemplative period is setting in. We are entering a time when the general pulse of society has seen through the veil of glittery consumerism and all it promised. Now artists and thinkers are returning to find what’s left of their roots. This exhibition features the work of seven Chinese photographers: Liang Weizhou, Huang Xiaoliang, Song Chao, Luo Dan, Lu Yanpeng, Adou, and Wang Ningde. Their images of the Chinese people and environment offer social commentary and reflect both tradition and change. 

 

This exhibition is organized by the Dennos Museum Center, Traverse City, Michigan, in collaboration with M97 Gallery, Shanghai. Exhibition in Kalamazoo is made possible in part by the Joy Light Fund for East Asian Art Acquisitions and Exhibitions.
