秋麦:太阳并非如人一般居于中心

UCCA presents a lecture with photographer, calligrapher, and book artist Michael Cherney (Qiu Mai) who will be sharing thoughts on his artistic practice and recent artworks with a Beijing audience. Cherney's work combines modern photography and Chinese classical painting, and the audience will be able to view his work on site. The lecture will be followed by a Q&A with the artist.


Michael Cherney
One would be hard-pressed to find a "more Chinese" artist than Qiu Mai (b. 1969). Photographer, calligrapher, and book artist, Qiu Mai's work is done with the great sophistication that draws on the subtleties of China's most scholarly and esoteric traditions. Based in Beijing and a successful artist whose works have been collected by The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Department of Asian Art (the first photographic works ever to enter the collection of that department), Qiu Mai's art is less provocative than it is intellectually engaging, meditative, and often simply beautiful. What is provocative is his identity: Qiu Mai is the Chinese name for Michael Cherney, born in New York of Jewish parentage. Cherney's work is the cutting-edge demonstration of artistic globalization: if Asian artists can so readily "come West," then what is to prevent large numbers of future Western artists from "going Asian"? Or, like Qiu Mai/Michael Cherney, going both ways at once, both American and Chinese, modern and traditional. — (Jerome Silbergeld, P. Y. and Kinmay W. Tang Professor of Chinese Art History, Princeton University)
