An Evening with Xu Bing

The work of Chinese artist Xu Bing challenges the meaning of language and what we see, from his groundbreaking installation A Book from the Sky (1987–91)—scrolls and books filled with what appears to be Chinese text but turns out to be fake characters—to his recent foray into feature film, Dragonfly Eyes. Xu joins us for an illustrated talk about his universe of language, meaning, fiction, and truth.
