Somehow I think the Chinese use the term “famous” more loosely than Americans do. (I’m not saying that to disparage any of the other artists in the exhibit–it’s only meant to be a comment on my own reputation!) Nonetheless, I’m happy to be a part of this exhibition in Tsingtao.
This is actually only one of two exhibitions in China I will be a part of this month. The other is West on the Left, East on the Right, the 2016 version of the event I participated in last year. As was the case last year, after the reception for the show, 188Art (the show sponsors) will be taking the Chinese and American artists on a 10 day tour. This year we will be vising a number of locations in Gansu Province, with a short trip into Inner Mongolia as well. If the tour is anything like last year, it’s going to be a great experience. The folks at 188Art are very generous and thoughtful in their treatment of the artists.
