Please Explain: Gender + Art in China

SYDNEY. SATURDAY 2 FEB 2019. 2.00PM – 3.30PM

The first Please Explain panel for 2019 reflects on Xiao Lu’s practice and examines the representation and misrepresentation of gender in contemporary Chinese art. Considering exhibition histories both nationally within China and internationally as part of the wider art community the panel will debate and dissect how museological and curatorial structures have contributed to how gender has been portrayed in contemporary art from China. This event is part of our public programming for Xiao Lu: Impossible Dialogue 肖鲁:语嘿, part of Sydney Festival 2019.

Speakers:  Chun Yin Rainbow Chan, Kelly Doley (moderator), Luise Guest, Shao Yiyang and Xiao Lu.

Join us from 1.30PM at 4A for a special pre-exhibition tour conducted by visiting Beijing-based curator Alia Lin.
