Xu Bing (Chinese, born 1955) is a current A. D White Professor-at-Large (2015-21). His playful and poetic animation video The Character of Characters (2012) expresses his views on the Chinese writing system as fundamental to Chinese culture and its progress toward the future. The installation will be featured alongside select works of Chinese art from the Johnson's collection. 

This exhibition has been cosponsored by the A. D. White Professor-at-Large Program and is part of the campus-wide Cornell Council for the Arts 2018 Biennial, Duration: Passage, Persistence, Survival.
