Cantor Arts Center is delighted to welcome Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries (YHCHI) to Stanford University to debut IS THAT ALL THERE IS?, a performance-video-lecture for their program “What Makes Us Tick: An Introduction to Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries”. If making artwork is urgent, this new work asks why and how artists can or should play a role in the hermeneutic circle. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.

Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries is is Young-hae Chang and Marc Voge. Based in Seoul, YHCHI have created a signature style of syncing original texts and music. These performance-video-lectures have been developed in English, Korean, and twenty-four other languages, and many of them have been shown in major art institutions and biennials. They were the 2012 Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Creative Arts Fellows. In 2018 M+ Hong Kong acquired an archive of all of their past and future work, YHCHANG.COM/AP2: THE COMPLETE WORKS. YHCHI gave the 2020 Renato Poggioli Lecture at Harvard University. M+ commissioned a major work, CRUCIFIED TVS — NOT A PRAYER IN HEAVEN, for its inaugural museum opening, in 2021. In 2022 a show of their work, both on- and offline, opened at Tate Modern, London. To accompany their 2022-23 solo show at Neue Berliner Kunstverein, YHCHI made a 2361-page artist’s book, SOUVENIR. Their work will be included in the new edition of the Norton Anthology of English Literature.

All public programs at the Cantor Arts Center are always free and open to the public. Seating is limited, and advance registration is recommended. This program will not be recorded.

We gratefully acknowledge support from The Distinguished Lecture in Asian Art Fund in Honor of the Lijin Collection.
