Brian Dursum, director and chief curator of the Lowe Art Museum , has brought us the results with “China: Insights,” 150 photos of nightlife, trannies, hookers, rural living, sex, drugs, and religion. According to Dursum, an expert on 17th-century Chinese ceramics: “The Chinese don’t openly talk about stuff like this.” Moreover, none of the photographers have ever exhibited outside their home country. It’s a true inside look at one of the most interesting economies of the 21st Century as filtered through a fine-art lens.
