Long March- Qiu Zhijie

The Thunderstorm Is Slowly Approaching
The Thunderstorm is Slowly Approaching, by the artist Qiu Zhijie, takes the traditional Chinese dragon dance as a starting point for investigating the pressures to hide national identity within a ???host?? culture, in a festive public gathering in Chinatown. The Thunderstorm is Slowly Approaching includes installation, performance, video, and a ceremonial ten-member dragon dance team wearing a costume made from camouflage.

Beginning in Chinatown at noon and ending at 2 pm, The Thunderstorm Is Slowly Approaching will arrive at the Asian Contemporary Art Fair at Pier 92 at 3 pm,
