We at the museum have all been really excited to finally see this new exhibition in person – Wanxin Zhang: A Ten Year Survey. These large-scale ceramic pieces are inspired by the Qin terra cotta army that was found in China in 1974. But this illustrious artist has added decidedly American twists to his people – Mickey Mouse ears, anyone?

Of course I went running to the gallery with my iPhone when I heard they were unpacking. (They actually seem a little creepy, all wrapped in plastic as they are still.)  I’m really excited to see the whole gallery filled with these!

Wanxin Zhang: A Ten Year Survey is open Jan. 30 – May 1, 2010. Feel free to join us for the free opening reception on Friday, Feb. 19, 7-9 p.m. too.

The artist will actually be at ASU Art Museum on Friday, Feb. 5 for a Conversations @11 lecture, so you’ll even have the chance to meet him in person and ask him about his work and creative process.

PS: Gordon Cheung and his lovely wife Rui are HERE now! Come meet him this Friday at 11am at the museum!
