"Order: Installation and Paintings by Xiaoze Xie"
2000-05-20 until 2000-08-27
Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art
Scottsdale, AZ, USA United States of America

Xiaoze Xie was born in the People's Republic of China and studied architecture and art in Beijing before immigrating to the U.S. in 1992. Much of the artist's work explores the effects on society of cultural ideology and indoctrination; of censorship and the struggle for free expression.

Using photography in a very painterly manner, Xie creates haunting images of burning books that reflect the destruction of knowledge by political extremists. Organized by the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, curated by Debra L. Hopkins, Curator of Exhibitions.
