The exhibit’s inclusion of 1.5 generation artists—artists having a foothold in two or more cultures—features Artist-in-Residence Carol Koffel, with Stella Zhang, Jiang Xueman, Liang Liting, Liu Yin, and a video exchange with Fei Contemporary Art Center in Shanghai.Carol Koffel has spent the last three months at the CCC as our inaugural Artist in Residence. In the show, she is challenged to incorporate community elements into her work and experiment with culture and 1.5 generation.
