Artist Talk with Miao Ying
A program of:
Miao Ying: A Field Guide to Ideology
Tuesday, March 8, 6pm ET
Miao Ying is a member of the first generation of internet artists in China and a dual Netizen of the Chinternet (the restricted Chinese internet, a.k.a. the “Great Firewall”) and the World Wide Web. In this talk, Miao Ying maps out a general trajectory of her practice, which evolves through a dialogue with the internet. What is an “Internet Installation”? Why does Ying describe her relationship with the state as a form of Stockholm Syndrome? How does she formulate the juxtaposition between the internet as an ideological construct hidden behind the “Great Firewall” and social media platforms in the West?
Presented in partnership with the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design.
