A glimpse of the east
Zhang Huan's "My New York: #1," from the exhibit "On the Edge: Contemporary Chinese Artists Encounter the West," at the Davis Museum and Cultural Center, Wellesley College, Wellesley, from Feb. 15- May 24. Zhang Huan, a performance artist who now lives in New York, donned a bodysuit of raw meat that made him resemble a flayed version of the Incredible Hulk and then walked through the streets of his adopted hometown in a commentary on the tenacity of New Yorkers after 9/11. At the Davis, photographs and video of "My New York" convey both the strength and the tenderness of a city recovering from a terrorist attack.
