In relation to the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery and MISSION 17 exhibition imPOSSIBLE!, Beijing-based artist Xing Danwen (http://www.danwen.com/) and Bay Area artists and scholars will talk about their own work and research in the context of the theme of the exhibition, and the general topic of contemporary Chinese video and photography.
About the exhibition:
The artists in imPOSSIBLE! engage strategies that include using humor that is slightly dark and often times ironic that create absurd or impossible scenarios, and confront highly exaggerated aesthetic and conceptual sensibilities. In a situation where radical change becomes an everyday experience, the artists found that by engaging these strategies they were able to create works that reconcile the past with the present and highlight the pace of contemporary life in China.
