Chinese Arts Now: Artist Talk with Zhu Dansiyu
- Ticket Source
Zhu Dansiyu on appropriating a traditional Chinese aesthetic and techniques to depict queer desire through a queer gaze. The event will be translated from English to Mandarin. Zhu Dansiyu is an illustrator and digital painter with a great passion for classical Chinese painting. She employs digital techniques to expand traditional content, narrates contemporary, individual, edgy, and borderline stories, and iterate classical motifs in this traditional art. Dansiyu advocates the idea of “Women`s Drawing” and works with image metaphor, context interpretation, creative writing, and the free association process of psychoanalysis.
