DURHAM, NC.- The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University will present Between Past and Future: New Photography and Video From China, on view October 26, 2006, through February 18, 2007. This exhibition offers the first comprehensive look at innovative photo and video art produced in China since the mid-1990s. The show features more than 100 works by 60 Chinese artists, many of whom are exhibiting in this country for the first time. The show provides insight into the forces shaping modern Chinese culture and focuses on artists’ responses to unprecedented economic, social and cultural changes that have swept through China. Between Past and Future is ambitious in scale and experimental in nature; it contributes to a new understanding of the different ways that younger Chinese artists have come to perceive themselves and their communities. The show won second place in the International Association of Art Critics/USA’s 2003-2004 AICA Awards, in the category of “best thematic museum show in New York City.” The New York Times called the exhibition an “impressive survey” and “perspective-altering,” noting Zhang Dali and Liu Wei among the show’s “bright artists.” The exhibition will conclude an international tour with showings in New York, Chicago, Seattle, London, Santa Barbara, Calif., and Berlin.

At the Nasher Museum, this exhibition and its related programs received support from the North Carolina Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of North Carolina and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes a great nation deserves great art, and from the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, Duke University's Asian/Pacific Studies Institute, Duke's Department of Asian and African Languages and Literature, and Duke's Film/Video/Digital Program.

Nasher Museum exhibitions and programs are generously supported by the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, Mary D.B.T. Semans and the late James H. Semans, The Duke Endowment, the Nancy Hanks Endowment, the James Hustead Semans Memorial Fund, the Marilyn M. Arthur Fund, the Victor and Lenore Behar Endowment Fund, the Sarah Schroth Fund, the North Carolina Arts Council, the Office of the President and the Office of the Provost, Duke University, and the Friends of the Nasher Museum of Art.
