Glass Factory: new work of Yaning Xing
Anchor House of Artists, Bumpus Gallery (518 Pleasant Street, Northampton, MA 01060, Northampton MA)
Yaning Xing, MFA candidate in Umass Amherst, works across the mediums of painting, drawing, and installation. Born in China's Shiyan, Hubei, formerly a booming factory town, her work offers a window into the lives of those conscripted by Chinese modernity, communities like her own whose ways of life have been forever changed by the relentless logic of capitalist restructuring. Shown here, a swing made of a window and handmade glass chain. Large prints with social relevance in this exhibit too.
