From the Duke University Calendar

"Between Past and Future: New Photography and Video from China"

Time: Regular museum hours: Tu, Wed, Fri, Sat, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Th, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sun, noon to 5 p.m., closed Mondays - Location: Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, 2001 Campus Drive, on Anderson Street, adjacent to the Sarah P. Duke Gardens

This exhibition, on view through Feb. 18, offers the first comprehensive look at innovative photo and video art produced in China since the mid-1990s. The show features more than 100 works by 60 Chinese artists, many of whom are exhibiting in this country for the first time.

The show provides insight into the forces shaping modern Chinese culture and focuses on artists' responses to unprecedented economic, social and cultural changes that have swept through China. "Between Past and Future" is ambitious in scale and experimental in nature; it contributes to a new understanding of the different ways that younger Chinese artists have come to perceive themselves and their communities.

The show won second place in the International Association of Art Critics/USA's 2003-2004 AICA Awards, in the category of "best thematic museum show in New York City." The New York Times called the exhibition an "impressive survey" and "perspective-altering," noting Zhang Dali and Liu Wei among the show?s "bright artists." The exhibition will conclude an international tour with showings in New York, Chicago, Seattle, London, Santa Barbara, Calif., and Berlin.
