The hardest part of showing contemporary art from China is the act of physically transporting it. While technology can help us bypass that, what problems of presence are introduced in the virtual realm? SWIM Gallery’s new show PLAY ME · LOVE YOU is an immersive two-part exhibition that brings these issues to the viewer’s attention. The gallery has been transformed into a space for plugging in to receive a “digitally-focused” introduction to You Ada (尤阿达). Although the Hangzhou-based artist is known for his paintings, he’s brought a selection of videos, prints, and sculptures to the US for the show. His paintings are only accessible online, virtual exhibitions developed by Slime Engine (史莱姆引擎) and a 360° film of the artist’s studio.
