On September 27 A4 Contemporary Arts Centre in Chengdu, China will host an artist talk about Eastern and Western artistic concepts in contemporary photography, called “The West is not bright, the East can be bright”.
The talk, initiated by the Chinese curator Yi Hong, will give opportunity to Chinese artists Mu Ge and Zhang Jin, the curator Xu Sheng, the American artist Oliver Herring, and the German photographer Fabian Hammerl to debate the presence of specifically Eastern/Western concepts in their work.
