Join artist Qiu Anxiong and LACMA curator Susanna Ferrell as they discuss Qiu’s poignant work The Doubter in the exhibition Legacies of Exchange: Chinese Contemporary Art from the Yuz Foundation. They will delve into ideas of reinterpretation and cross-cultural exchange in the artist’s practice.
Qiu Anxiong was born in Chengdu, China, in 1972, and now lives and works in Shanghai. He graduated from Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts in 1994, later moving to Germany to study art at the University of Kassel’s College of Art, graduating in 2003. He works across media, creating animation, painting, and installation alike, often centered around the relationships between humans, animals, and the environment. His pieces have been collected by major museums worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, Kunst Haus Zurich, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, and the Hong Kong Museum of Art.
