Wang Du: Défilé

Jun 9–Aug 5, 2001

The MCA is pleased to present a monumental work by Chinese artist Wang Du entitled Défilé. This work fuses social realist propaganda, Chinese sculptural traditions, and American pop in a structure that resembles a catwalk and a float for a Chinese military parade. The disproportionate sculptural procession of armed soldiers, commanders, tanks, aircrafts, missiles, a submarine, and a demonstrator with a giant slingshot are all derived from images taken from Chinese military propaganda magazines.
