  • About the Book
  • Zheng Chongbin sculpts light and space to shift our perspective of the sky and our place in the everchanging world.

    Zheng Chongbin: I Look for the Sky documents a solo exhibition of new works by Bay Area-based, Chinese contemporary ink artist Zheng Chongbin. The exhibition consists of a newly-commissioned, large-scale ceiling installation in AAM’s Bogart Court and a light tunnel/environment surrounded by an installation of paintings in AAM/s Osher Gallery, opening in June 2020. The publication historicizes this prominent, mid-career artist through two scholarly essays and an artist statement related to the new works in the exhibition.
