Song Dong's large–scale installation comprised of items that his mother and grandmother collected over a period of five decades. It follows the Chinese concept of wu jin qi yong or "waste not," as a prerequisite for survival.
The Kronos Quartet reunites with long–time collaborator Wu Man to present two important works from their repertoire: A Chinese Home and Ghost Opera. A Chinese Home is inspired by the extraordinary story of a 300–year–old house from a southwestern Chinese village that was dismantled piece–by–piece at the turn of the millennium and rebuilt at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
Inspired by artist Song Dong’s investigations of family, consumerism, and the small meditative moments that punctuate an ordinary life, Daily Lives is a group exhibition borne out of a collaboration between YBCA and the Chinese Cultural Center.
