Artist Conversation: Kelly Wang and Zhang Hongtu

Thursday, February 17, 2022 @ 5:30 pm

Artists Kelly Wang and Zhang Hongtu combine contemporary and ancient influences, as well as American and Asian traditions, to create multimedia works infused with elements of cultural identity and heritage. They will use Wang’s exhibition Between Heartlands, on view at Art@Bainbridge, to discuss their artistic inspiration and process. Wang brings the perspective of a person raised in New York City with Asian roots, while Zhang was born in China and came to the United States seeking artistic and religious freedom.
