Tears, Tears, Tears with Wu Tsang
Art Basel Opening | South Island Cultural District Art Brunch
The history of Qiu Jin’s multiple burials and the struggles of different groups and individuals to claim the symbolic meaning and resting place of her body was the inspiration for this event. First to retrieve and bury Qiu’s discarded body after she was executed was Wu Zhiying, who mourned the loss of her close friend in private while publicly defending Qiu’s reputation in print. We invite you to join us at this special event where Qiu’s multiple legacies will be incinerated through Chinese practices of ancestral mourning.
The event happens during Art Basel’s South Island Art Brunch on Thursday, March 24 from 10am to 2pm. You can start with a visit to Spring Workshop, then take our latest neighbourhood map in order to find other nearby galleries and eateries.
