Yuyang Zhang: umm no

April 15 - May 27

Free
This collage of photograph, pop-culture imagery, and Chinese Communist Party propaganda delights the eye, confusing dimension, location, and direction, at the same time that it immerses the mind in a play of theme—one is never sure whether to laugh, ponder, or wonder.

Fuller Rosen Gallery is delighted to announce umm no, a solo show of new work by Portland-based artist Yuyang Zhang. umm no presents two distinct bodies of work by Zhang; a selection of digital collages and paintings created during quarantine in 2020-21. The gallery will also exhibit a textile banner designed by the artist in collaboration with Brittany Vega. Zhang’s collage work combines original photographs, recognizable Western pop culture imagery, and Chinese Communist Party propaganda. His newest series of paintings This is not Mandarin are composed of iPhone emojis as an entrypoint into “learning” a word in Mandarin. The resulting work allows space for new narratives surrounding the duality of Chinese and American culture that are witty, quirky, sometimes queer, and always relevant. umm no will run through May 27, 2021.
