Eastern Standard: Western Artists in China

Opens February 2, 2008



A rising superpower, China has captured the world's attention as well as that of an array of international artists and film-makers. With a booming factory culture re-shaping the country's economy and monumental building projects transforming Shanghai's now-familiar skyline, the new China is provoking both excitement and anxiety in the West.

While most of our perspectives on the enormous changes happening there come from limited news sources, Eastern Standard: Western Artists in China offers a look at China through a different lens. The exhibition will feature a range of works by artists addressing the complex issues facing China in the wake of industrialization and globalization - as well as their reverberations in the West. Works by Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla, Patty Chang, and Catherine Yass, among others, will be included. Yass's monumental video installation Lock, for example, takes viewers on a journey through a lock of the colossal Three Gorges Dam, one of the most celebrated and most controversial projects in China's new development and a symbol of the conflicting opinions about China's future.

The exhibition includes three new commissions by Roma Pas, Lucy Raven, and collaborators Oliver Lyons and Alexis Raskin. Major works by Tobias Bernstrup, David Cotterrell, Annika Larsson, David Thomas and the team of Patty Chang and David Kelley will all make their U.S. debut at MASS MoCA. Additional works by Jennifer Allora and Gui-llermo Calzadilla, Jules de Balincourt, Sarah Beddington Edward Burtynsky, Lana Lin, Walter McConnell, Michael Wolf, and Catherine Yass are included. Out of the twenty-one works on view, twelve are video installations. A portable medium, it is both practical for nomadic artists, and captures something of the pace and scope of the China spectacle. An extensive documentary film program will be presented in the galleries in conjunction with the show.



"Likewise, Eastern Standard does not offer a single view, but many varied impressions of a rapidly evolving country. David Thomas' enormous photographic banner, In the Palm of their Hands (2007), which depicts Shanghai's TV tower held between giant fingers – a familiar, joke photo snapped by countless tourists illustrates our desire to "grasp" our subject, even if it means diminishing it. At the same time, this play on perspective aptly communicates the exhibition's aim – to present alternative perspectives while reminding viewers of the difficulty, absurdity even, of synthesizing such an enormous and complex subject."
