Cao Fei: LA Town

September 10– October 25, 2014
Artist: Cao Fei

Beijing-based artist Cao Fei is one of the most significant and innovative young artists to have emerged on the international scene from Mainland China. Known for her multimedia installations and videos, she mixes social commentary, popular aesthetics, references to Surrealism, and documentary conventions in her films and installations. Her works reflect on the rapid and chaotic changes occurring in Chinese society today and explore the lost dreams of the young Chinese generation and their strategies for overcoming and escaping reality. An ambitious stop-motion feature, La Town exemplifies the artist’s playful-yet-political practice, converging fantasy and reality into a film noir-inspired vision of the contemporary China and the World at large.
