Artist Lu Zhang recreates experiences, memories, and time through clay sculptures, video projections, and sound installations. On Thursday, February 11 at 12 PM ET, Lu will join CMA Associate Director of Programming Raquel Du Toit for a virtual artist talk and studio tour. This event will be livestreamed on CMA’s Facebook page.

Lu Zhang is an artist born in Xian, China. Lu’s work recreates intimate experiences from one’s own social and cultural complexities. Lu tells stories through sculpting, freezing the shifting narrative of our actual experiences, and making impositions upon everyday life, literature, film, pop culture, and music in the form of installation that incorporates ceramics, found objects, dreams, moving images and sound. In 2017, Lu created Wildman Clab, a lab and club for researching and proving the existence of primitive relational experiences by exploiting technology through alternative activities. Recent exhibitions include The Clemente Art Center, Underdonk, Chen’s Space, Chashama, Present Company, Special Special, NARS Foundation, Museum of Chinese in America, A.I.R Gallery, The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, Korean Culture Center, and Xi’an Academy of Fine Art. She received her MFA in Fine Arts and MS in Art History from Pratt Institute in 2015. She also holds a BA degree in Economics from Xi’an JiaoTong University.
