Artist Wang Yin was born in Jinan and raised in Qingdao, both in Shandong province. Qingdao, a former German colony that was briefly occupied by the Japanese as well, has deeply influenced Wang Yin's art, and Lu Xun Park is one of its most important landmarks as well as a frequently visited subject in Wang Yin's canvases.
For this conversation, UCCA has invited Qingdao-based writer Li Ming (Zhong Shan Road: A Street and the History of a City, Tsingtao Bygones) and curator Sun Dongdong (author of several articles about Wang Yin's work) to discuss the culture and history of Qingdao and Lu Xun Park as they relate to Wang Yin's canvases.
