Artist Lecture: Xu Bing
October 3, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On Tuesday, October 3, 4–5 pm in Falvey Hall, MacArthur-winning Chinese artist Xu Bing will discuss his work. Bing gained international recognition in the late 1980s with Book from the Sky, a monumental installation composed of books and scrolls printed with what appear to be traditional Chinese characters.
In 1990 Xu Bing moved to the United States where his work has continued to focus on written language. His work has been exhibited in China, Japan, Australia, the United States, and all over Europe. In 2008, Xu Bing was appointed vice president of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.
