Hear New York-based artist Paul Chan talk about his innovative mixture of art and activism. Chan is a 2005-06 Wexner Center Residency Award artist in media arts.
Chan works in a variety of mediums, from video to digital animation to drawing. His recent creations have ranged from an interpretative homage to outsider artist Henry Darger and French philosopher Charles Fourier to a surreally animated look at the landscape of war. This afternoon he speaks about his practice and recent works, some of which have been included in the 54th Carnegie International and the 2006 Whitney Biennial, as well as about his upcoming Wexner Center residency project.
