This Sunday, the gang and I had a busy day at the 798 art district. Highlights:

  • Kehinde Wiley's paintings of African soccer players at UCCA. (Disappointingly, the actual paintings did not arrive at the opening, so copies were on display.)
  • H.H. Lim's "Gone with the Wind" installation, also at UCCA. (Which consisted of ceiling fans "cutting" provocatively through slits in walls, cars and furniture, all of which is surrounded by slightly pointless painting.)
  • Tony Oursler's solo exhibit at Faurschou. (Ambitious, large show with two new, site specific video pieces including a talking Mao projection.)
  • 798 Photo Gallery's "Linger." (A group show that suspiciously resembled a solo show of eerie, sad plastic looking girls in photographic collage scenes.)
  • Iberia Center's "Asian Landmark" group show. (Spy cameras, a motion sensor robotic lotus blossom, light sculptures, video and a life sized tractor made out of faux fir. Really delightful!)
