About

Body, Self, Society: Chinese Performance Photography of the 1990s highlights some of the most significant examples of Chinese performance photography from 1995 to 1999. Featuring works by Ai Weiwei, Cang Xin, Huang Yan, Ma Liming, Song Dong, Zhang Huan, and Zhuang Hui, this exhibition focuses on individual artist-performers who explore three key themes: new visions of the performing body, the changing sense of self in modern China, and a continued confrontation with specific aspects of the country's society, history, and culture.
