Mind the Gap is a current exhibition at The Delaware Contemporary that aims to explore the gaps in life we all face. The work on display investigates various perspectives that will inspire viewers to reflect on their own gaps in life. This panel discussion intends to explore the concept of “gaps” through the critical lens of women’s roles and their identities in the context of Chinese contemporary art. Moderated by the curator of Mind the Gap, Wenlu Bao, the discussion invites female art professionals from different roles and jobs to share their ideas, experiences, and stories. Panelists will include the New York based artist Emily Cheng, curator Kathrine Page, and gallerist Echo He. Questions will center on issues such as gender gaps, how New York City reacts to Chinese female artists, how visual art benefits Asian communities, and what kind of art education practices attract Asian artists that help to close or minimize the gaps.
