1. Beijing-based artist Huang Rui performs an on-site performance Ping Pong that references the legacy of Chinese-American cultural and diplomatic relations through the trope of the game of ping-pong, emblematic for the thawing of relations between Chairman Mao Zedong and President Richard Nixon. Alongside Ai Weiwei, Wang Keping, Li Shang and others, Rui is a founding member of the avant-garde group Stars that led to the creation of China’s contemporary art scene. He has presented work in institutions including the National Art Museum, China, the Groninger Museum, Netherlands, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York. This performance is courtesy of 10 Chancery Lane, Hong Kong.

  2. Dan Levenson presents a talk on the State Art Academy Zürich (SKZ), an influential, albeit fictitious, Swiss art school responsible for a late revival of a strictly modernist practice. Weaving between his own work as a painter and the legacy of the SKZ, Levenson presents a talk that explores how ideas and philosophies of art are recuperated into new work, highlighting the difficulty of being original within the context of academic, economic, and ideological structures. Levenson’s talk is presented by Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects.
