Evolution, a visual art exhibition featuring documentaries and photographs by Mr. Yang Zhang, a renowned director of documentaries on China’s underground music. In the Post-Revolutionary Era, a documentary that Yang filmed two decades ago, Yang captured every aspect of the underground music scene in a time where the society did not pay any attention to non-mainstream music genres. As an underground musician himself, Yang documented the survival and growth of his peers with passion throughout the past two decades. Yang’s documentaries have become synonymous to the passion of the young generation in China while they also serves as a window, through which people themselves can see the true nature of underground music. This exhibition features the premiere of Yang’s documentary China Youth Today, marks Yang’s first solo exhibition in New York City, and the first time that his artworks go on display for audiences in the U.S.A.
