Xiaowen Chen: Spectacle

 

 

 

The Warehouse Gallery

June 18 – September 5,  2009

 

The two solo exhibitions, Xiaowen Chen: Spectacle and Xiaowen Chen: 100 Last Names, at The Warehouse Gallery, present work from the past nine years by Chinese-born, Ithaca-based Xiaowen Chen. The artist has lived in the United States for the last two decades and his works dwell on the space between two cultures. From his many return trips to China, Chen has created digital images and video projections reflecting American and Chinese attitudes toward the twenty-first century role of media and technology and identity issues. His works addresses both China’s historical transformation and the artist’s own personal experience as an émigré.
