Our very own An Xiao Mina will be hosting an evening at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco next week (July 2). From their website:
Writer, critic, artist and technologist An Xiao Mina has designed an interactive program that will explore the visual culture of the Chinese Internet. First, she will lead a panel of artists and researchers in the exploration of Chinese digital culture with a focus on creative forms of expression through words and images. Then attendees will participate in a calligraphy workshop meant to offer a hands-on exploration of Chinese-language Internet puns, sourced by Beijing-based artist Ma Yongfeng.
Organized in conjunction with the museum’s current exhibition, 28 Chinese, the program aims to provide insight into Chinese digital culture, which influences and inspires many creative professionals today, as well as the broader public.
