Make Room is proud to present They Rise When Vernal Breezes Blow, a presentation of works that collectively search for meaningful and poetic responses to one’s inherent desire to live. The artists in this exhibition were born in China between the momentous 1950s and 1990s, a period of time that saw vastly transformative social, economic, and cultural shifts in the country. The works in this show are impulsive, accumulative, and introspective, while revealing the time and space their creators have lived in. Many of these artists embodied a new turn of phrase in their practice, namely “transnationalism,” as art critic Barbara Pollack describes, “a hybrid identity formed from the many places they had lived and influences they had studied.” These artistic forms oscillate from the response of the external happening to identifying with the self, but all the while celebrating this tenacious force of vitality within humanity.
