David Diao: Documents of Diaspora
Fist of Fury

Born in Chengdu in 1943, David Diao has produced a body of work that speaks to the vagaries of formal aesthetics, art-historical consensus, personal circumstance, and geopolitical succession. Here through poetic leaps of imagination, UCCA connects these themes with filmic documents that speak to Diao’s specific diasporic experience, works of both unabashed kitsch and academic rigor.
