Emerging artists present work at CCAS

From the Selby Gallery of the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, new Chinese art comes to Sacramento.

“Hanging in the Balance: Ten Emerging Chinese Artists” presents the work of 10 young artists, all born in the 1980s and growing up in the radically changed capitalist, globally-connected China: Cao Shumo, Libin Chen, Chen Wei, Jia Zhixing, Jin Jing, Meiya Lin, Ma Wen, Wei Na, Yang Jian and Zhifei Yang.

Most of them earned recent MFAs in multimedia and fine art under the exhibition’s curator, Quin Jian, at the Xiamen University of Art in China and at the Sandberg Institute of Amsterdam.

They have all held residencies, lived and exhibited in Europe as well as China. Except for Libin Chen, “Hanging in the Balance” is their first exposure in the United States.

The exhibition does not travel after the Center for Contemporary Art Sacramento, 1519 19th St. in Sacramento, showing and runs through April 1.

Lecture: March 22, at 7 p.m. “New Art from a New China,” Katharine Burnett, associate professor of art history, University of California, Davis, specialist in Chinese art and culture. Dr. Burnett will locate the work of the show’s young artists in the history of Chinese art.

Admission is free but donations are appreciated. Lectures are $5 and free to members and students.
