  • Look Deeply & Redescribe -- Contemporary Art Sharing and Creative Practice
  • July 23     Sunday   2:00PM - 4:00PM (EST.)     at CMCLed by Lu Gao
  • In the process of the emergence of contemporary art, artists began to try to bring art into everyday life by looking deeply at normal things, training themselves to remove habitual discrimination, enjoying and noticing the "inconspicuous" things. For example, the artist Allan Kaprow said, "I am determined to watch myself brushing my teeth, watching my arms move up and down, I am just facing myself, no audience, no gallery, no criticism."

    The course will introduce artists and works that use "deep insight" as an approach to creation, and invite the audience to choose an object around them and redescribe it using photography, painting, text, performance, or any other approach. As art historian Wang Rui-yun said, "Miracles are not far away and beauty is not only in galleries, we don't have to look for them outside, we have them in ourselves, but unfortunately they are neglected by ourselves. If we can cherish and live in every present moment, cherish every even the smallest thing, life is not wasted, not imprisoned and enslaved by concepts."
