Art in Review: Patty Chang

Melons, 1998

Patty Chang, noted filmmaker, photographer and performance artist, will present her work in RKC 103 this Thursday, April 26, at 5:00.  Using herself as the protagonist, Chang has created a bracing body of work, sometimes funny, sometimes shocking, sometimes both, that comments on women’s roles in American and Chinese cultures.  New York Times critic, Roberta Smith, has praised Chang’s “post feminist toughness in which different aspects of the feminine are flaunted, exaggerated, or rendered almost humiliatingly vulnerable.”  All are invited to hear this challenging and entertaining artist.
