Duke University’s Nasher Museum of Art plays host to “Displacement: The Three Gorges Dam and Contemporary Chinese Art” through July 25, 2010.
About the exhibition –
The Three Gorges Dam on the Yangzi River in China is the world’s largest generator of hydro-electric power. When it was built, it displaced more than one million people and submerged more than 1,200 towns. This spring, the Nasher Museum presents “Displacement: The Three Gorges Dam and Contemporary Chinese Art,” in which four leading contemporary Chinese artists—Chen Qiulin, Yun-Fei Ji, Liu Xiaodong and Zhuang Hui—respond to the dam project.
