ART EXHIBITION OPENING
0 — Viewpoint
In a series of five provocative and luminous new installation works, contemporary artist Stella Zhang explores her personal journey as an immigrant and woman in the first major Bay Area exhibition of her work at the Chinese Culture Center

A field of soft and suggestive pillow-like forms lies on the ground inviting touch, but bristles with sharp points. Gentle smoke drifts lazily on a video screen surrounded by nails that anchor tautly stretched fabric, pulling in conflicting directions. In the work of contemporary artist Stella Zhang, alluring organic forms hint at tenderness and vulnerability while unexpected creases, spikes and smears of sand allude to a more complex and agitated landscape of feelings beneath the surface.

This spring, the Chinese Culture Center (CCC) of San Francisco continues its Xian Rui (Fresh and Sharp) exhibition series with 0 – Viewpoint, the first major Bay Area solo exhibition of the work of contemporary artist Stella Zhang. With five dramatic all-white installation works, Zhang, who has worked primarily as a painter in China, Japan and now the Bay Area, makes her first foray into sculptural work to continue her deeply personal and often provocative exploration of identity – as an immigrant, a woman and artist.

Opening reception is free to the public.
