Happy New Year! To kick off LITHIUM’s programming for 2019, we are very pleased to announce our January event, Like Waves Against the Sand, a night of audiovisual performance and selected experimental film video projects by artist Chinese Shi Wenhua. This event is in conjunction with Time Within, the artist’s solo exhibition currently on view at Walford Art Gallery of Wheaton College from Jan. 17th to February 16th. Time Within features Shi’s most recent work, including a 4-channel film/video installation Sense(s) of Time, a two-channel video installation Water Walk, a projection piece Wave Line, and a 360 video VR piece Wish You Were Here.

His work has been presented at museums, galleries, and film festivals, including International Film Festival Rotterdam, European Media Art Festival, Athens Film and Video Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Pacific Film Archive, West Bund 2013: a Biennale of Architecture and Contemporary art, Shanghai, Shenzhen & Hong Kong Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism, and the Arsenale of Venice in Italy.
