10 Chancery Lane Gallery invites you to go further than just reading the book but really dive deeply into the context of art, life, politics and the influences that brought about art history in its making.
By Xiao Lu
Every Monday from 19 October for about 4 weeks*
Hong Kong Time 5PM – 6:15PM
What forces continue to oppress and restrain women artists in contemporary China? Some powerful answers are provided in this fictional memoir by Xiao Lu, whose art played a pivotal role in the “China Avant-Garde” exhibition that opened four months before Tiananmen Square erupted in violence. Her dramatic personal story is emblematic of the challenges facing many talented artists in contemporary China.
Xiao Lu is an internationally recognised artist and her works were included in exhibitions at the Tate Modern, London and MoMA, New York during this last year. She is also included in Phaidon’s recently published compendium “Great Women Artists” which gathers 400 women artists from 50 countries spanning 500 years.
*The first week will focus on introducing the contemporary art scene of China from 1978-1989 and look at the events that lead up to Xiao Lu’s 1989 Dialogue work. No reading necessary for the first week’s meeting besides the introduction by Gao Minglu. At the end of the book, we will invite Xiao Lu herself to join us in a Q & A session.
The book can be bought at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery or via booksellers such as Amazon or Kindle.
