Chinese Contemporary Artist in Residence at UAlbany

The New Emerging From the Old

The University at Albany Art Museum presents: The New Emerging From the Old, Lu Shengzhong: Works 1980-2005. It is the work of major Chinese contemporary artist, Lu Shengzhong, who established worldwide prominence in the 1990s.

During a 17-day residency, he will create a site-specific installation comprised of thousands of red tissue paper cut-outs he calls "Book of Humanity: Empty Book." Responding to the height and volume of the museums' center exhibition space, Lu Shengzhong's work will reach from floor to ceiling in varying heights - creating a playful, yet ephemeral work that is at once comic, dramatic and complex.

Based in Beijing, Lu Shengzhong was selected as one of the first Chinese artists to represent his country in the 50th Venice Biennale. He made his solo debut in America in 2000 in New York City. He has had recent solo exhibitions in Russia, Germany, Japan and Australia. He is a professor in the Folk Art Department of the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. The exhibition is on view from September 29 - November 13, 2005. For more information>>
