Sumiao's presentation investigates the emergence of new fashion-driven gender models in contemporary China: the "supergirl" and the "city jade" man. Sharing the gender-neutral aesthetics fashionable in recent decades, these two models present much about contemporary Chinese culture and society. Exploring why and how these figures have arisen out of the post-Mao de-politicization of gender issues, Li argues for the centrality of global fashion in shaping personal and group identities and discusses challenges the new formations pose for transnational feminist practice.

Terry Nauheim, performs her work, "Propagation Seems Good Here Tonight" on Tuesday, October 18th, 8pm at the Issue Project Room, Brooklyn, NY.
Join free103point9, PAJ Publications, Issue Project Room, and Electronic Music Foundation in celebrating the publication of Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves by Galen Joseph-Hunter with Penny Duff, and Maria Papadomanolaki (PAJ Publications. In association with free103point9.) This event will feature performances from Todd Merrell, Kabir Carter, Terry Nauheim, Lázaro Valiente, Joel Chadabe, and others.
In this ground-breaking look at a new art genre, Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves brings together a genealogy of 150 artists and artworks—and more than 250 images—from 1921 to the present that encompasses performance, video, radio theatre, sound art, media installation, networked art, and acoustic ecology. Here is a fascinating account of the ingenuity and creativity of artists who have made new discoveries in broadcast, public works, performance composition, sound, and text, stretching the boundaries of both transmitter and receiver. At a time when public access struggles with corporate control of the airwaves, artists have combined activism and communications technologies to represent alternative worlds on the electromagnetic spectrum.
