Touche à Tout

upcoming exhibition at Bollag – Space Basel
TOUCHE À TOUT with
Jiajia ZHANG (CH/USA)
Virginie YASSEF (F)
Anna WEBER (CH)
Fatos ÜSTEK (GB)
Hildegard SPIELHOFER (CH)
The show takes place from the 1st – 16th of June.

The exhibition entitled TOUCHE À TOUT is an outcome of an experimental platform in a way in which four artists and a curator have allowed themselves to delve with the notion of uncertainty while applying it as a methodology. In other words, the group not only investigated the concept and the conditions of uncertainty personally, but also allowed the project to emerge as such.
Melding intuition with conceptual approaches, the exhibition is a group project that hosts individual works in dialogue with one another. Relating to the notion of uncertainty through the means of openness and conditions of trust, the project suggests a positive connotation for the very theme. Concentrating on the notion as a personal matter, the artists explore patterns of rule guided and intuition guided decisions while taking social and emotional constructions into account. Feeling uncertain brings forth an oscillation between concepts, ideas and feelings while it can induce fear and anxiety to the picture. TOUCHE À TOUT rather bringsforth the idea of being in the flow of things with contentment and openness while seeking to expand perspectives.

This project is supported by Ernst und Olga Gubler-Hablützel Stiftung and the cultural department of the City of Basel.

“America through a Chinese Lens”, exhibition at MoCA, NYC

April 26 – September 10, 2012
Exhibition at the Museum of Chinese in America, 215 Centre Street, New York, NY 10013

Featuring photographs and projects by:
Yan Deng, Wing Young Huie, Wayne Liu, Arthur Ou, Julie Quon, Ka-Man Tse, Tseng Kwong-Chi, Ann Woo, An Xiao, Amy Yao, Chien-An Yuan, Hai Zhang, Jiajia Zhang
+ community photographs from MOCA’s collection

America through a Chinese Lens surveys photography of American life as shot by contemporary Chinese and Chinese American artists, documentary photographers and non-professionals, identifying the specific ways in which the Chinese have used the camera to see this country – its beauty, contradictions, and realities. The exhibition spans many generations of photographers: contemporary artists who use the medium as well as snapshots taken by new immigrants from the 1950s to today which have been selected from MOCA’s permanent collection. During the run of the show, new media artist and design strategist An Xiao will be shooting and posting photographs regularly as she travels throughout the west and southwest, offering a live visual essay about her America on our tumblr page: chineseinamerica.tumblr.com.
