Nha San Collective - Artist Talk with Xu Zhe


Nha San Collective warmly invites you to the talk with artist Xu Zhe from Shanghai, China.
In this talk, he will share about his practice, as well as his recent projects.
Xu Zhe was born in Shanghai in 1976. He graduated from the School of Fine Art, Aix-en-Provence, France in 2006 and now lives in Shanghai.
Xu Zhe is a very diverse artist in his practice. He works making video, installations, sculpture and photography. He is a member of an artists’ group “Zuzhi” that supports different art-related projects and he is part of a jazz improvisation band and teaches new media at Shanghai Art School.
He describes himself as an artist, not particularly a photographer. Photography is a tool that he uses if he needs to express his intention.
