Wang Du: Défilé


The MCA is pleased to present a monumental work by Chinese artist Wang Du titled Défilé. This work fuses social-realist propaganda, Chinese sculptural traditions, and American pop in a structure that resembles a catwalk and a float for a Chinese military parade. The disproportionate sculptural procession of armed soldiers, commanders, tanks, aircrafts, missiles, a submarine, and a demonstrator with a giant slingshot are all derived from images taken from Chinese military propaganda magazines.
