Xiaolong Fang, A Shared Sun, 2015.

"I use traditional printmaking and papermaking techniques to record and restore urban culture, a culture that will disappear. I am interested in exploring the distinct urban culture in different countries or different cities. With the expanding city, the urban culture is on brink of destruction. Through traditional techniques, I am documenting and reviving these tiny sparks of culture, which I believe to be the root and true soul of the city. I am interested in using the basic element of hair; hair is a symbol of memory because hair is filled with DNA information unique to an individual." —Xiaolong Fang

This exhibition is presented with support from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
