The Lewis Global Studies Center had planned to host the artist Zheng Bo as our Spring 2020 Leader-in-Residence. Though that residency was necessarily postponed, the artist agreed to co-create a video interview, discussing his art, his activism and his unique vision of what he calls “our inter-species relations” with the world. A self-described “eco-socialist conceptual artist,” Zheng Bo has created award-winning installations and workshops throughout Asia and Europe, highlighting the impact of climate change and offering an alternative, responsible strategy for living on earth. Yao Wu, Jane Chace Carroll Curator of Asian Art, talks with Zheng Bo about art, climate, sexuality, and other subjects in this image-rich interview.
Even though we weren't able to hold International Poetry Day at the Poetry Center this year— where students present poems in their original languages and in translation— we've still managed to find a way to bring our students' wide & wonderful variety of international poems to you. Poems were collected from far and wide, from students taking world language classes as well as from international students.
