China Near_Now Exhibit

The sound of one cicada chirping, Chinese construction workers perched high in a large tree, Snoop-Dogg translated into Mandarin, photographic survey of Cao Chang Di urban village in Beijing, a 50km long elevated freeway and many hands working are all gaming with the social constructs and emergent formations of space in the wake of the rapid urbanization of China.  China Near_Now focuses attention on material and construction culture of contemporary China, and how numerous forms of spatial production express the anxiety and euphoria around the diabolical near-now condition of China in the world today.  Curated by Assistant Professor Robert Adams, China Near_Now is supported by the Center for Chinese Studies and Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.  The gallery is open from 8:30 – 6:30 Monday – Friday, and the exhibition closes on March 8th.
