Why we post: artistic impressions of ethnography


South Cloisters | Wilkins Building (link Map)
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

The Why We Post exhibition tells the story of how 9 anthropologists set out to comparatively examine the uses and consequences of social media around the world. Xinyuan Wang, one of the researchers on the project, turned her ethnography of a factory town in China into a series of traditional-style Chinese calligraphy paintings. This short exhibition talk will explore how she combined her anthropological and artistic training to produce a visual documentation of her experiences of fieldwork.
