Winona State University’s Watkins Gallery will host Yuge Zhou’s exhibition of video installations, “In the Shape of a City,” from October 18 through November 8. Zhou will give a public lecture on October 18 at 5 p.m. in the Science Lab Center, room 120. A reception with hors d-oeuvre at the Watkins gallery will follow from 6-7 p.m. Zhou creates what she calls “urban dispositions” that examine the complex interactions between humans and their environment. The works Zhou will exhibit at Winona State reimagine cityscapes in a fractured, poetic manner. Each of Zhou’s pieces is created from dozens of different source files and then used to make a collage. Her works are often 10-12 feet wide and are projected onto custom-designed panels Zhou makes to throw the projection into relief. Zhou holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her piece, Midtown Flutter, which will be part of her exhibition at Winona State, is currently a finalist in the competition ArtPrize 9 and is currently on view at the Grand Rapids Art Museum in Grand Rapids, Mich.
