    KIA Exhibition: How to Return? Contemporary Chinese Photography

    This exhibition by contemporary Chinese photographers was curated by Michigan native Steve Harris, owner and operator of M97 Gallery, Shanghai. He says of the exhibition, “(Chinese) society has seen through the veil of glittery consumerism and all it promised, and now artists and thinkers are looking in many ways how to return to find what’s left of their roots.” The show presents contemporary images of the Chinese people and environment, both urban and rural. Reflecting tradition and change, the works offer social commentary by photographers who have gained international recognition for their work: Liang Weizhou, Huang Xiaoliang, Song Chao, Luo Dan, Lu Yanpeng, Adou, and Wang Ningde. Exhibition in Kalamazoo is made possible in part by the Joy Light Fund for East Asian Art Acquisitions and Exhibitions.
