Delighted to share Wang Zhibo’s participation in the group presentation ‘Neither Black / Red / Yellow nor Woman’ at Times Art Centre Berlin. Curated by Nikita Yingqian Cai (Chief Curator, Guangdong Times Museum) and Xiaoyu Weng (Associate Curator of Chinese Art, Guggenheim Museum, New York), this exhibition is rooted in the conceptual reenactment of works and archives of the artists Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982), Pan Yuliang (1895-1977) and Trinh T. Minh-ha (b. 1952). All three of them have inspired artists, writers, cultural practitioners, and intellectuals of different generations to imagine and produce their own world images. Departing from a fictitious encounter of the three protagonists in 1979, the exhibition tells stories of women who search for their artistic voices, and whose identities haunt them while empower them—regardless of their various cultural, geographical and historical contexts.
