Happy New Year in the Year of the Rat! Officially it starts Feb. 7th, 2008.
To help celebrate, let’s look at some of the things going on in the world of Chinese photography.

Start making your travel plans.
FotoFest 2008 - Photography from China, 1934 – 2008 Photography from China, 1934 – 2008
March 7 – April 20, 2008 in Houston, Texas

“Departing from most contemporary art programs on China, the FOTOFEST2008 exhibitions and programs will present both historical and contemporary work. The historical component features three exhibitions showing works from 1934 – 1975 that have never been shown outside of China before. Seven contemporary programs and exhibitions present work from the late 1980’s to 2008 – classical and mixed media work by Chinese artists addressing religion, ethnicity, gender, urban transformation, identity, globalization, and the inter-relationship of current art to classical Chinese art and history. All the exhibitions are by Chinese artists working in mainland China. Much of the work to be presented by FotoFest will be seen outside of China for the first time.

Accompanying the CHINA exhibitions, there is a presentation on the evolution of 20th century Chinese photography at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston with two leading Chinese scholar-curators, March 12, 2008.”
