Group Exhibition

January 18 - February 21, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, January 18
2 - 4 PM

The Delaware Contemporary continues the initiative to expand its reach in a cultural exchange with Chinese-based artists, designers, and curators. In a joint collaboration with The University of Delaware Chinese Students and Scholars Association (UD CSSA), The Delaware Contemporary will showcase an exhibition of photographs from the East Coast Chinese Community. Various viewpoints on the topic of "Somewhere Else" will examine differences in daily life between places, emotional moments of nostalgia, or other narratives that point to the ambiguous and unknown. By exploring issues of identity, cultural barriers and bridges, the exhibition intends to widen the aperture on the lives and talents in the local Chinese community, especially through the lens of early adulthood that often records, discovers, creates, and challenges perspectives.

How does one define homeland? By definition homeland means one's native land, speaking to an intimate familiarity and a sense of security. Many people find themselves floating outside this realm of safety by living, studying, or traveling to somewhere else. Among those individuals finding themselves "somewhere else" are the overseas students, workers, or families from China. They are, or have experienced, moving from native land to somewhere else, from Chinese culture to another culture, only to find the transition initially somewhat disorienting. The Gretchen Hupfel Curator of Contemporary Art, Kathrine Page, addressed this relocation phenomenon like "adjusting to the light" as if exiting or entering from a dark room into the bright light of day.

The exhibition includes the following 15 artists.

Fangyu Cai: from Xi’an, Shaanxi in the middle of China. “Nine years of studying in the US taught me that everything in life is precious.“

Yi Cao: a Beijing native with a Master's Degree in arts management at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.

Bozhan Hong: a junior year student at the University of Delaware. “I am hoping that one day I can travel around the world to learn about different cultures and diverse food.”

Tianyi Hou: “I am a college student who enjoys recording life with cameras and food.”

Zhongyuan Hu: a Computer Science major at University of Delaware. “I love to take pictures of my life and places using many devices.”

Yihang Jiang: graduate student at the University of Delaware. “I grew up in the beautiful city of Zhenjiang, Jiangsu. After six years studying in America, I have gradually turned Newark into my second hometown.”

Shuyao Li: “I am a finance student who loves traveling and often uses the holidays to travel and broaden horizons.”

Tianyu Liu: “I am from Tianjin. I like to take pictures of beautiful scenery. Recently, I decided to own a bookstore”

Yufan Wang: born and raised in Beijing, pursuing a Bachelor's degree at the University of Delaware. “I enjoy taking pictures, while singing in the wild.”

Yu Wei: from Tianjin and student at the University of Delaware. “I like to record every beautiful moment in my life with photos.”

Muyang Wu: born in Beijing and currently studying at the University of Delaware. “I really like traveling to places. My goal is to travel around the world before the age of 30.”

Linhan Xu: from China. “I love photography because it can translate my inner feelings into tangible photos.”

Ruisen Yang: from China. “I like photography, because I can use the camera to record life.”

Furui Zhao: “I am an outdoor adventurer and nature lover. I believe that you need to make efforts to reach true beauty.”

Xiaofeng Zhu: studying in the University of Delaware Chemistry Department. “I enjoy painting very much.”
