Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the author's participation in the China Avant-garde Art Exhibition in Beijing, China. It explains that her participation at the exhibit was a pure coincidence because she did not receive any application form and she just received a letter saying that the installation Dialogue has been accepted for exhibition. It also relates her decision to fire a gun during the exhibit, her borrowing of the gun from Zhao Xiaoshu, and the assistance provided by Lan Jun in setting up her installation.
