Lu Yang is currently showing in his first European institutional solo with the Kunstpalais Erlangen. The exhibition False Awakening draws from global gaming culture not only in aethetic terms. Visitors are invited to slip into selected roles from Lu Yang’s repertoire and explore his digital world. In May and June, a series of lectures titled Just Thinkers and Creators will examine Lu Yang’s art from the perspectives of art and cultural studies, sinology, and queer studies. Last but not least, the extensive mediation program in cooperation with the Confucius Institute Nuremberg-Erlangen, the Haus des Spiels (Museums of the City of Nuremberg) and the 20th International Comic-Salon Erlangen opens up perspectives on LuYang’s art for everyone. The artist’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany is co-curated by Malte Lin-Kröger and Nora Gantert. Read further information here.
