SI & The New York Public Library | Artist Talk: Yu Honglei 对话艺术家尉洪磊

Tues | 10AM

Yu Honglei Artist Talk Swiss Institute New York Public Library

In collaboration with the New York Public Library, Swiss Institute is delighted to present an artist talk by Yu Honglei. The event, conducted in Mandarin Chinese, will be broadcast on the New York Public Library’s website via GoToWebinar. For details and to register, please click here

In a diaristic presentation, Yu Honglei will explore ways of life during COVID-19 time. The talk will consider Honglei’s recent paintings and early video work, interwoven with the haikus of Kobayashi Issa and quotidian video footage recorded on the artist’s phone two months prior to the outbreak of the virus in China. Seen together, the elements present a singular look at the artist’s interdisciplinary practice and point toward the “flattening” of communication and artistic production in times of isolation. 

Swiss Institute与纽约公共图书馆合作,为大家呈现尉洪磊的艺术家讲座。讲座将使用中文普通话进行,并将通过GoToWebinar在纽约公共图书馆的网站上播出。有关详情及注册方式,请点击此处。

在此次充满启发和日记性的讲座中,尉洪磊将探讨他在COVID-19时期的生活方式。这次谈话将涉及尉洪磊最近的画作和早期的视频作品,其中穿插小林一茶(Kobayashi Issa)的俳句以及病毒在中国爆发前两个月这位艺术家手机上录制的日常视频。综合来看,这些元素展现了艺术家跨学科实践的独特视角,并指向隔离时期交流和艺术生产的“扁平化”。
