Based in Beijing and New York, artist Xu Weixin is known for his stunning, large-size portraits of Chinese people who lived during the Cultural Revolution. In 2016, the series and portraits of contemporary miners were presented with great acclaim at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. In this webinar, he will invite us into his studio in New York, and talk about his paintings in progress, some of which are directly concerned with the COVID-19 pandemic. To understand a larger context, we will invite two panelists to talk about Xu Weixin’s work in relation to Chinese contemporary society and artistic practice, followed by conversations with the artist. This webinar will illuminate art and artists’ roles during the global health crisis and the rise of anti-Chinese and anti-Asian sentiment in the U.S.

Attendants will be able to submit questions during the Q&A period following the discussion.
