Would you like an "eye-opening overview of China's contemporary art scene of the past two decades"? If so, then SF Weekly suggests 28 Chinese, now in its FINAL WEEKS (yikes). It's a striking exhibition full of thoughtful surprises, presenting 48 artworks from 28 of the most notable artists working today. Don't miss the show stopper, Zhu Jinshi's Boat—a "massive yet delicate piece...of pure lightness." (KQED) Click here to see a riveting time-lapse of Boat being installed, and watch this trailer to whet your appetite.
See it for just $5 on Thursday nights! There are just two opportunities left to do this: This Thursday, Aug 6, hang with the Grammy-nominated jazz ensemble Asian American Orchestra for an evening that's part conversation and part musical show-and-tell about their latest production, "1945: A Year of Infamy," about the 70th anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On Aug 13, meet the fascinating Miami couple who spent a decade exploring, researching and collecting the artworks in 28 Chinese.
