“Nanjing Style: Photographs from our Sister City”
On dispay May 18th - 31st, 2015
One year ago, the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum (IPHF) sent eight St. Louis based photographers to Nanjing, China as part of their Sister City collaboration with the Nanjing Federation of the Arts. Next week, sixteen Chinese photographers will arrive in St. Louis to spend a week visiting and photographing our city. In celebration of their arrival, IPHF will present the work of the guest photographers in four exciting venues including the Incubator at the Kranzberg Arts Center, IPHF, The Dark Room Wine Bar and Photo Gallery, and Plaza Frontenac.
The works featured in this exhibit embrace photography in all of its manifestations, from landscape panoramas to sports, social commentary, photojournalism, and most importantly, as a personally creative medium. Join us at the Kranzberg Arts Incubator to experience this powerful cultural exchange.
Featured Artists: Liu Jie, Jiang Mingdeng, Liu Chuanjun, Jiang Suping, Wei Fuchun, Chen Xiangyu, Diao Aiguo, Le Hong, Gao Dongyang, Cao Jianhun, Tian Songhu, Chen Tianhe, Hu Xiangyang, Pan Jinyu, He Jianping. Lijun Zhou.
