Beijing Impressions Traveling Exhibition

Beijing Impressions: Portraits of a Shifting Landscape

This traveling exhibition series incorporates the voices of many artists, educators, university students, and families; exploring intimacy, familial attachment, and transitional issues, transforming traditional photographic portraiture into multi-layered creative portrayals; interweaving objects, landscapes, memories, and stories. Within the 10 years since its inception in Beijing, the project has attained a broader audience, addressing the multiple cultural contexts of environment, urbanization, and migration.

A 17’ photographic banner from this exhibition hangs in the UNC School of Public Health Atrium. UNC Professor of City and Regional Planning, Yan Song shared the auditorium for a slideshow and lecture, Urbanization in China: Critical Issues in an Era of Rapid Growth.

The visual interpretations are inspired by Samm Tyroler-Cooper and Bai's poetic voices addressing the 'wildness and darkness' of 'The Sun Setting City Luo Ri Zhi Cheng.' A silk installation accompanies the exhibition is a collaboration with local fiber artist, Margaret Gignioux and was produced specifically for the UNC Global Education Center exhibition in 2012.
