Event Description
The Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas and the H&R Block Artspace at the Kansas City Art Institute are pleased to present the inaugural North American exhibition by the internationally renowned Xijing Men. In preparation for this exhibition, the artists have spent a 10-day residency in Kansas City creating and installing a new work to be displayed alongside previous work. Tonight, it is unveiled. The Xijing Men hail, conceptually, from the fictitious city of Xijing, an imagined political entity in East Asia; since forming in 2006, they have staged scenarios drawing heavily on absurdity, satire, sarcasm, and humor. All three artists will be present at this reception.
