Tseng Kwong Chi: East Meets West
Time Out says
A photographer, performance artist, provocateur and documentarian - Tseng Kwong Chi was all of those things. First made his mark in New York City during the late 1970s, the artist was most known for playing upon particular western stereotypes and notions of Asians. Often donning nothing but an army-style haircut, reflective sunglasses, and a Mao suit, the artist assumed the identity of an ambiguous Chinese statesman at exclusive events and tourist meccas. Presented by Ben Brown Fine Arts Hong Kong, the Tseng Kwong Chi: East Meets West exhibition brings together black and white self-portraits and large-scale photographs, creating an extremely compelling body of works of the late great Hong Kong-born artist.
