Fascinating article in Dolls
There is a very interesting article in the latest Dolls Magazine newsletter about Chinese artist and dissident, Liu Xia. Writer Stephanie Finnegan presents a compelling look at Liu Xia's photographs of dolls. As an artist living under a repressive regime, for her own safety, Liu Xia intentionally stays "in the dark" about international exhibits of her photography.
Currently showing is "The Silent Strength of Liu Xia" at The Italian Academy, part of Columbia University, in New York, extended until April 20, 2012.
Sobering, isn't it, to think that in China I might be arrested for the simple act of posting about an art exhibit.
