Eli Klein Gallery is proud to present "Becoming - Experimental Video Works," a group exhibition of eight contemporary Chinese female artists.


Similar to performance art's openness for experimentation, video art, a relatively new medium that only started to gain attention from the art world in the 1960s, has offered female artists a chance to develop their own perspectives without the limitation of a male-dominated tradition. In 1996, China held its first video art exhibition, "Phenomenon and Image." Though decades later than the West, avant-garde Chinese artists had fully utilized this exotic medium, which was considered as the embodiment of self-reflection, to challenge the traditional painting. Curated by Zhang Fang, this exhibition presents a group of Chinese female artists' self-searching journeys and their ways of transcending the mundane. "Becoming-Experimental Video Works" will be on view from October 26th to December 23rd, 2019.
