XU BING’s Lecture Series at New York University(III)
In early spring 2023, Xu Bing’s Lecture Series took place at New York University in NYC, the United States. Presented by Xu Bing Studio, International Center for Critical Theory, Department of Comparative Literature, Poetics & Theory, and NYU Center for the Humanities, the Lecture Series was hosted by Professor Xudong Zhang (Comparative Literature and East Asian Studies at NYU), and interpreted by Shiqi Liao (Senior Language Lecturer for the Chinese language). The Lecture Series was conducted in three installments, each providing a deep dive into Xu Bing’s recent works, methodologies, and creative process. Taking place in different classrooms and lecture halls on the NYU campus, every lecture was swarmed with students, scholars, researchers, and keen fans of Xu’s work from inside and outside of NYU. The lectures were also live-streamed, and hundreds attended from around the world.
