I wanted to go to the Santa Barbara Museum of Art today for this photography show:
Between Past and Future: New Photography and Video from China
This exhibition, representing the only California venue, provides the first comprehensive look at the innovative photo and video art produced since the mid-1990s in China. Organized by the Smart Museum of Art University of Chicago and the International Center of Photography, the collection features 130 works by 60 Chinese artists, many of whom are exhibiting for the first time in the United States, and reflects the enthusiastic adoption of media-based art by younger Chinese artists.
Just now I noticed that the show opens two weeks from now…July 1 – September 17, 2006
it looks like it would have been a great show to see.
