Born under China’s one-child policy in the 1980s and raised amidst the country’s recent social and economic changes, China’s “lost” generation has gained a reputation for unprecedented individualism, ambition, and distinctive sense of humor. Curated by Nicky Ni, this program brings together a group of emerging Chinese artists whose work contemplates their unique connection to the country’s greater cultural narratives and phenomena. Through poetic reenactment, parodic performance, or punky intervention, featured artists Tao Hui, Hao Jingban, Yao Qingmei, Liu Yefu, among others, piece together fragmented individual and collective histories to make new meaning from a reimagined past. Multiple formats. (Nicky Ni)

Curator Nicky Ni is scheduled to appear for audience discussion.
