O Zhang at Pearlstein Gallery
April 07, 2010
An exhibition of photographs by the New York-based artist O Zhang featured at the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery, March 29th through May 21st. The opening reception for O Zhang: The World is Ours/Yours was at the gallery on Wednesday, April 7th from 5-7 PM.
O Zhang’s recent photographic work makes use of what is familiar both in journalistic forms and those derived from advertising and other media-driven content. Her photography explores notions of social-economic imbalance both in her home country of China and elsewhere, often illustrating how illusory things can seem when viewed from different cultural vantages.
O Zhang is a graduate of Royal College of Art in London and Central Academy of Art in Beijing and is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Artist Fellowship (NY).
