The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China – An Exhibition Website
Wrightwood 659 and The Smart Museum have teamed to present this improved virtual exhibition. As they write, "Our website for the special exhibition The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China is new and improved! We’ve refreshed theallureofmatter.org as a central resource for extended exhibition-related content, including an array of virtual experiences and at-home activities. Start with exhibition co-curator Wu Hung’s keynote address from the 2020 US-China Forum. Entitled “Material is the Message,” the talk defines the major characteristics of material art and its place in the trajectory of contemporary Chinese art."
