Crossroads curated by Liu Ding, Carol Lu Yinghua
Crossroads intends to reiterate an irresolvable dilemma. It is not impossible to gain emotional comfort by returning to the past, or to predict the future by detecting signs of historical circles. Neither is moving forward a horizon to count on. Crossroads is skepticism towards escapes, solutions and the long-termed objectives. This exhibition aims to recognize and provide a gaze at a situation of confusion and of being in the center yet having no way out.
