Programmed by Sylvia Schedelbauer, here’s a pair of international artist-teams who address seismic cultural shifts centering on China and Taiwan. Emerging SF artist Yin-Ju Chen introduces a 20-min. setof video work—with the premiere of Transaction—lyricizing her personal cultural anxiety. Her suite of subjective insights is broadened
in collaborative work with another OC favorite, Mr. James T. Hong: a first view of "Divided and One", on the election in Taipei. Hong also presents a sneak preview of his "New History Zero" (on Japanese historical revisionism),
"The Coldest War" and "Sino-American Friendship".
The evening is anchored by the West-Coast debut of Maya Schweizer and Clemens von Wedemeyer’s "Metropolis:
Report from China", a riveting verité essay, produced by the Pompidou, that engages with the oft-overlooked human agents of China’s staggering growth. $6.
