DAM Contemporaries celebrates the 10th anniversary of Logan Lectures with four artists who share global perspectives in their interdisciplinary practices.
Born in Guangdong at the beginning of the Chinese Cultural Revolution in 1966, Xiaoze Xie's work has remained deeply affected by the loss of tradition, culture, and learning since moving to the US in 1992. His most recent series traces the practice of banning books in China and explores the history of censorship, social memory, and political discourse.
Doors open at 5:30 pm.
Individual lecture tickets: Free for DAMC members & students w ID; $10 DAM volunteers, $15 DAM members, $20 nonmembers.
Note: Tickets for this particular Logan Lecture are free for Asian Art Association members.
