Colette Fu: We are Tiger Dragon People

August 28 - December 9

Free

Colette Fu’s one of a kind pop-up artist books, based directly on her experiences learning about her ancestry from the diverse peoples of Yunnan Province in Southwest China, will be on view in the Dana Gallery this fall. Through layers of photographs, her books document the life and complexities of the 25 minority tribes that live in this region. Fu says of her work, “Pop-up and flap books originally illustrated ideas about astronomy, fortune telling, navigation, anatomy of the body and other scientific principles. This history prompted me to construct my own books reflecting ideas on how our selves relate to society today.” Fu’s work brings to light cultures and methods of making that foster dialogue about identity, Chinese culture and art making practices.

Opening reception and Artist in Conversation: September 6, 5 p.m. Dana Gallery
