Xiaoze Xie will discuss his research into the history of censorship in China that inspired the current exhibition Xiaoze Xie: Objects of Evidence. The artist will be joined by noted experts on the subject of censorship in a panel led by Michelle Yun, Asia Society Museum Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.
