Yuanyuan Yang: Theater of Crossroads

From Aug 31 to Sep 28th, Gallery 456 presents “Theater of Crossroads”, the first solo exhibition by Beijing based artist Yang Yuanyuan in NY.
the exhibition showcases photographs and a performance video from four different projects—10 Days in Kraków (2014), At the Place of Crossed Sights (2015-2016), Dalian Mirage(2017-ongoing), and Yang’s current research about a group of pioneering female performers of the Chinese diaspora.
Keeping an eye out for the forgotten and untold life stories of people whose memories have been buried by mainstream accounts of history, Yuanyuan uses these figures stories and contrasts them with the history presented in ‘authorized’ texts.
Using cross-disciplinary sources including film and literature, as well as her own photography and writing, Yang mixes fact and fiction to create anachronistic storylines and question the way in which history is written.
