Xu Bing’s Dragonfly Eyes, Screening
Fall Quarter Spotlight Artist in Residence
The California Studio
In conjunction with the California Studio Manetti Shrem Artist Residencies program, there will be a special screening of Xu Bing’s acclaimed film Dragonfly Eyes. The screening will be held on Nov. 1 in the Main Theatre, Wright Hall, at 4:30 p.m (doors open at 4:00 p.m.). The event is free and open to the public.
Xu Bing’s first feature film stitches together surveillance footage collected from the Internet to create a fictional tale about a young woman traversing life in modern China. The result is a provocative tale as mundane, surreal, and outlandish as reality itself.
Xu Bing is the fall quarter spotlight artist in residence in The California Studio: Manetti Shrem Artist Residencies. The screening is organized by The California Studio and co-sponsored by the Department of Art and Art History, East Asian Studies and Global Affairs.
WHEN: Tuesday, November 1, 2022 at 4:30 p.m.
WHERE: Main Theatre, Wright Hall
Sponsored by UC Davis College of Letters and Science, UC Davis Global Affairs, and the UC Davis departments of Art and Art History, Cinema and Digital Media, East Asian Studies and East Asian Languages and Cultures.
