Interview with Wang Jianwei on Yellow Signal

Volume 11, Number 3, May/June 2012
by Zheng Shengtian

Article Description

Zheng Shengtian's interview with artist Wang Jianwei. The notion of “yellow signal” forms the thematic of this exhibition and implies entry into an intersection at a critical moment when there is the need to make a decision either to be cautious and hold back or to take a chance and proceed forward—a situation that Zheng Shengtian suggests exists for artists in mainland China as well as in many other regions. The rapid growth of new media and its impact, especially in the virtual world, makes the idea of “yellow signal” even more compelling.
