Lin Wang: Artist Residence Exhibition

  • YiWei Gallery 7854 West Manchester Avenue Playa del Rey, CA, 90293 United States (map)

Open House and Curator Talk with Chinese Photographer Lin Wang

Please come and meet Chinese photographer Lin Wang at the new Yiwei Gallery in Playa del Rey. Lin is a former flight attendant who began her MFA studies in photography at the Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2001. Her documentary series “Tulips in Clouds” which examines her life with her co-workers, got her recognition in China, but also got her fired by the airline. Lin then became a full-time photographer. From 2010-2016, Lin produced the series “Stray Tulips” which represents her journey of seeking identity after being fired.

During her residence here in LA Lin is continuing her compositing series with beaches and planes, in addition to starting a new series comparing living conditions and environments between Beijing and Los Angeles.

This event is open to the public, not only PAC members.
