The US-China Forum 2020: The Matter of Art is convened by UChicago Arts and UChicago Global in collaboration with the Smart Museum of Art, and explores how China and the United States intersect, interact, and overlap through the arts. The program features in-depth conversations between renowned artists and distinguished UChicago faculty members. From XU Bing’s experiments in language, to MIAO Ying’s playful and complex internet-generated art, to the composition of city soundscapes in WANG Lu’s Urban Inventory, the US-China Forum offers a rare opportunity to hear from some of the most innovative artists working today and to experience the critical dialogue generated by their work. The forum sets the stage for the exhibition, The Allure of Matter, co-presented by the Smart Museum of Art and Wrightwood 659. Curated by WU Hung and Orianna Cacchione, the exhibition offers an extraordinary and comprehensive exploration of the state of contemporary art in China.
