The process of conveying and sharing ideas among various cultures and peoples is one of atrist Li Huai’s key artistic research interests. Please join us on October 4, 2014 for the opening of Li Huai’s exhibit Perpetually Dazzled at the Chuang Archive and Learning Center from 2:oo – 4:00pm.
Formally trained at the Beijing Film Academy, she deals with the impact of accumulated visual information and accumulated time–and their representations. Perpetually Dazzled, inspired by a recent visit to China, engages with the problems of information and interpretation while using the Chuang Archive and Learning Center as a supporting structure. This exhibit will run from October 4 – December 6, 2014.
Admission for the opening is $4, free for members and children under 12 years old. Walk-ins welcome but reservations are highly recommended. For more information or to RSVP, please call 619-338-9888 or email email@example.com.
