Fellowship Program
Name: Li Mu
Visiting From: Shanghai, China  
Dates of Fellowship: May 11 - June 11, 2011  
Recommended by: Biljana Ciric
curator and art writer based in Shanghai
Li Mu was born in 1974 in Jiangsu Province, China and lives and works in Shanghai. He graduated from the Suzhou Academy of Art and Design in 1995 and the Academy of Art of Tsinghua University, Beijing in 2001. He has had numerous group exhibitions throughout China and a solo exhibition at the Zendai Museum of Modern Art, Shanghai. Early on, Li worked mainly with video and photography, but over the last two years he has taken a new direction that cannot be easily categorized. Many of his recent works are more process-oriented actions that are very hard to distinguish from the rest of his daily activities. These ideas and actions are presented in a variety of different formats: as objects of documentation, piles of very detailed drawings in journals, photographs and writing on his blog.
