Baimei Tang, Spring Begins, MFA Thesis Exhibition
MFA Thesis Exhibition, Metals
Reception for the Artist: Tuesday, December 3, 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Originally from Changde, (Hunan Province,) China, Baimei Tang explores traditional Asian craft and experiments with new technologies in her studio practice. As an Artist-in-Residence in Kongbai, (Guizhou Province,) China, in the summer of 2018, Tang was immersed in this 600 year old Miao Village and the traditional handicraft of making silver ornaments. Her interest in the craft of filigree; where metalsmiths draw and pull silver into wires as thin as human hair, braiding the sliver and creating ornamental wearables; is evident in her recent work in Tang’s M.F.A. exhibition, Spring Begins.
