This Actually Happened—On Objectivity Without Universality: A Conversation with David Diao
Volume 14, Number 6, November/December 2015
by David Xu Borgonjon
David Xu Borgonjon's conversation with David Diao, an artist who has spent most of
his life in the US and appropriates New York
school–style painting to explore his family’s
home in China before they took flight to the
West when he was a youth. What emerges is how the hybridity of integrating two cultures might affect our assumptions about how to interpret this artist's works.
