FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Gallery d’Arte, 548 West 28th Street, Suite 338, NY City is pleased to announce @Y-# GRAFFITI ! by Yueyin Hu, co-curated by Somin Lee and Rachel Yejee Lee. The show will run from June 23-July 2, 2016, with opening receptions on Thursday, June 23 and June 30 from 6-8pm.
Featuring select digitally-altered prints and screen displays, the exhibition explores the interactivity and connectivity that is fostered by street art, the photograph, and its indexicality. The show marks Hu’s first solo exhibition with Gallery d’Arte.
Hu is a New York based Chinese artist with tendencies toward illustration and multi-media platforms. In 2015, she graduated from Parsons the New School for Design with master’s degrees in Design and Technology, following her studies at the Beijing Institute of Technology where she received a bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications in 2012. As a result, her visual language is informed by experimental, interdisciplinary, and often technologically-based approaches, along with influences from traditional Chinese ink culture.
This exhibition presents “Emancipation of the Street,” a projection mapping installation that highlights the notion of experiential experience; the projected animations charting the proliferation of graffiti culture in Manhattan. The exhibition also presents “Delusion,” a series of interactive photographs capturing New York City, by means which the viewer takes part in the processes of art-making; the interactive waves responding to each motion of the beholder, transforming the otherwise static images into dynamic manifestations of ambivalence and illusion. @Y-# GRAFFITI ! then strives to empower its audience, bringing the viewer to partake in the innovations of videography, image processing, and graffiti alike.
Hu is currently part of the Art Students League of New York Residency Artist Program (2016), following her activities at the NYC Media Lab Annual Summit Tech Show, and the LIQUID Room International Art Show in 2015. This year her work was included in the LIQUID Room Labyrinth Show, Fantastic Art China’s International Creative Festival, the group show “ULTRAMODERN” with AZART Gallery, and held her first solo show “Off the Wall” with Gateway Art Center. Hu has also published an arts textbook, “Decomposition & Reorganization – The Form of Space” (2016), as the Chief Editor of China Youth Publishing Group.
