“Wind Verification” | An art installation by Guo Cheng | March 5 to 9
Artist Guo Cheng is recipient of the 2020-21 CAC://DKU Research and Creation Fellowship supported by the Humanities Research Center under the theme “WWW – World Wide What” and co-curated by Vytas Jankauska, head of research at CAC, and Zairong Xiang, associate director of art.
The installation “Wind Verification” will be inaugurated by James Miller, co-director of HRC; Bi Xin, executive director of CAC; and Jankauska.
Join us for a symposium with Cheng, Jankauska and DKU professors Ivan Mura and Xiang on March 5 to find out more about Cheng’s exciting work, and “Wind Verification” in particular. The work addresses “the relationship between the common perception of social media as altered, selective representation of reality, and art as means for collective ‘peer-review’ of the unverified viral, in an attempt to provide alternative visions to what post-Covid-19 ‘World Wide What’ could become.”
