MCD MEMBERS TOUR: WANXIN ZHANG AND KATHY SIRICO STUDIOS, SAN FRANCISCO
Save the Date: Saturday, June 22, 2019
Join the Museum of Craft and Design in the Dogpatch and Bayview neighborhoods of San Francisco to tour the studios of interdisciplinary artist Kathy Sirico and ceramic artist Wanxin Zhang.
Kathy Sirico creates unpredictable sculptural works through experimental textile-based collage practices. In processing diverse and often recycled materials, she raises questions of ecological futurity in a world facing environmental devastation. Sirico’s work will be on display in our upcoming exhibition Interior/Exterior on view July 27–Dec 1, 2019.
Wanxin Zhang was born in Changchun in China, and spent his formative years in the 1960s and 70s under Mao’s regime. He was part of the first generation to receive a formal art education in college subsequent to the Cultural Revolution in 1976. After moving to California in the early 1990s, he began creating monumental clay figures that evoke the tension inherent in globalization, politics and power. Wanxin Zhang: The Long Journey will be on view March 16–July 14, 2019.
