This is the first exhibition to explore feminism and queer themes in contemporary Chinese art. To broaden the discussion to a trans-national frame and to avoid essentializing identity (but not depoliticize it), the exhibition at MBUS includes work by mid-career and emerging artists—not necessarily based in China or even of Chinese descent—alongside activist ephemera. Indeed, the title of the exhibition, WOMEN我們, is a play on the English–Mandarin homophone meaning “women” and “we.” It succinctly reveals the crux of the exhibition’s curatorial conceit: to examine issues relating to women in China while shifting and stretching the very terms of what the categories of woman and China signify. Organized by Alpesh Kantilal Patel in collaboration with Abby Chen.
