I'm Stepping High, I'm Drifting, and There I Go Leaping 越过栅栏,如鸟儿飞过

September 13 - December 14, 2022

Rizhao, China

The exhibition “I’m Stepping High, I’m Drifting, and There I Go Leaping” features 65 works by 49 female and gender-nonconforming artists around the world. Collectively, their practices seek to explore new visual languages and expand the boundaries of the representation of individual and shared experiences, particularly those made complex by gendered perspectives and historical projections. Focusing primarily on the medium of painting and works made in the past five years, the exhibition functions as a survey and an overview of recent activities and experiments in this expansive field. “I’m Stepping High, I’m Drifting, and there I Go Leaping” hopes to become a propulsive and generative force, registering a dissociation from conservative norms and sparking dreams of radical imagination.
