Yang Mai, UpRise 4 (站起来 4), 2019-20

Join CUE Art Foundation on Saturday, March 7 at 4:00pm for a public walk-through of Good Morning, China! (早上好,中国!) with artist Yang Mai and curator David Humphrey.

Mai recycles deadstock business suits, athletic wear, and school uniforms, garments selected by the artist to signify societal roles and systems of control. Drawing upon his experience growing up in Guangzhou, China, where he studied fashion and continues to source his materials from a shuttered clothing factory, Mai reimagines these materials as chains of balloon-like forms or precarious stacks of neatly folded garments impaled with fluorescent tube lights and folding chairs.

Mai and Humphrey will be available for questions after the walk-through.
