Xiao Lu is best known for raising a gun and shooting at her installation 'Dialogue' in the National Art Museum of China in 1989.

Join political activist and performance artist, Xiao Lu, with Passage Gallery Co-Director Ashleigh Jones, as they unpack key themes of the artist’s current exhibition ‘JUNK’ and her past history-making, genre-defining works. 

The artist's work encompasses various mediums such as performance, installations, photography, videos, and paintings. Her sensitivity lies in her authentic experiences and her conscious standpoint.

This conversation will be in both Mandarin and English.
