A Step in Time Across the Line: Recent Work by Chee Wang Ng

March 11 to May 7, 2017

Special Exhibitions Gallery, first floor

This Spring, The Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University will present A Step in Time Across the Line: Recent Work by Chee Wang Ng, the artist’s first solo museum presentation. Featuring large-scale conceptual photography, video, and installation work, including a new series of works that has never before been shown, the exhibition will shed light on traditional Chinese culture and the immigrant experience. Through the use of iconic Chinese symbols, artifacts, and Western memorabilia—such as porcelain figures, rice bowls, Chinese postal stamps, and chopsticks—juxtaposed with distinctly American imagery, such as Andy Warhol’s iconic Campbell's soup cans, the exhibition explores what it means to be Chinese in an increasingly multicultural and trans-national world, through the lens of diaspora identity.
