Feb 28, 2023

Curator and art historian Danielle Shang moderates a conversation between artist Zhu Jia and Orianna Cacchione, curator of global contemporary art at The Smart Museum of Art and art history lecturer at The University of Chicago. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Cruel Youth Diary: Chinese Photography and Video from the Haudenschild Collection, the conversation considers the impact of multiculturalism and globalization, and the social, economic and cultural conditions in China that informed the artists’ practices in the 1990s and early 2000s, when the works in the exhibition were made in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hangzhou.
