Keeping cultural dialogue alive and moving during the pandemic and transition has been a part of the Wende Museum’s mission, and this week the Art-Past-Present program will feature a multimedia artist focused on identities and transformations.
Ni Haifeng, who divides his time between Amsterdam and Beijing, is a multimedia artist who in his mesmerizing art projects reflects on global connections and dependencies past and present, and their association with cultural values, identities and transformations. He is the next guest in our series Art-Past-Present, this week for once co-hosted by writer, artist, curator and art critic Katya Tylevich.
The Wende’s Joes Segal will speak about artistic strategies, philosophical reflection and the role of humor in Ni Haifeng’s work.
Wednesday, April 21, 12 p.m. PST: interview with Ni Haifeng.
