Event description

Description

Join the opening reception for Present Tense 2019: Task of Remembrance on April 27th, from 2-4PM at the CCC Visual Art Center!

Chinese Culture Center (CCC) presents the latest iteration of its Present Tense Series with a group art exhibition that reflects on the complexity, gravity, and responsibility of remembering. Marking the thirtieth year since the global, cultural, and political upheavals of 1989, including the student protests in Tiananmen Square and the fall of the Berlin Wall, Present Tense 2019: Task of Remembrance looks broadly at struggles for freedom, the weight of history, and the ways artists and their communities build and engage with memory.
-------------------------------------------

The exhibition’s artists work together to explore the responsibility of remembering, especially in light of threats to democratic forms of government, rising global xenophobia, the impact of regressive policies on the lives of migrants and refugees, and the retrenchment of systematic violence and racism.

Working in a variety of media from sculptural installation to experimental film, participating artists and art collectives—seven of whom are local to the Bay Area—include Sofía Córdova, Yan Jun, Hung Liu, Ming Mur-ray, Lam Tung-pang, Related Tactics, Xu Tan, Tina Takemoto, Jenifer Wofford, Gao Xia, Li Xiaofei, Wu Yuren, and Stella Zhang. Additionally, there is a collection of ephemera from the archives of the Asian American Arts Centre on their 1989 exhibit June 4.

-------------------------------------------
Exhibition on view: April 27 - December 21.
Gallery hours: Tue - Sat, 10am - 4pm.
