James Elaine, an independent curator who has lived and worked in China since 2008, is the guest curator for ''Unfinished Country,'' a title that comes from a video of the same name by Yu Ying. That work is based on an unfinished painting from China's Cultural Revolution era. Via press materials, Elaine says, ''I borrowed his title intending it to portray contemporary China in a broader sense — the country is in transition in every respect. 'Unfinished Country' provides us a small window through which to view what is going on in the minds and lives of these artists and to look at the ancient country of China as it rises to a new position in the twenty-first century.''
There's an opening reception with guest curator James Elaine at 6:30 p.m. on November 1.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 1. Continues through Feb. 17, 2012
