Current Exhibition

Parallel Planet

April 27-May 3, 2016
Opening reception April 27, 4-6pm

Parallel Planet: Hip-hop Dance in China presents the first American survey of the field of Chinese hip-hop dance, showcasing works by dancers, designers, photographers, and visual artists who share a connection to hip-hop and a fascination with this culture’s unbridled expression of the self. Parallel Planet explores both underground and mainstream aspects of Chinese hip-hop dance. Works in the exhibition present Chinese hip-hop practitioners as devout followers of a foreign art form, meanwhile creatively developing it to reflect local contexts and to communicate across vastly disparate cultures. Through lenses of artists and pioneers from different areas in the hip-hop field, this show allows audiences to explore the redefined meaning of the hip-hop movement in China, and also brings up issues connecting the Chinese hip-hop dance industry to profound economic and social impacts.
