"Wǒmen (我们): Contemporary Chinese Art" was on view at the Kemper Art Museum from January 25, 2013 to May 26, 2013. The exhibition, curated by Samantha Allen, Elizabeth Korb, and Danielle Wu, showcased work by a selection of contemporary Chinese women artists who engaged with issues of identity formation in a globalized society marked by rapid urbanization and the incursion of digital technologies in China. Featured artists included Cao Fei, Chen Ke, Chen Man, Cui Xiuwen, Hung Liu, and Yin Xiuzhen.

Faculty advisors were Kristina Kleutghen, assistant professor in the Department of Art History & Archaeology, and Meredith Malone, associate curator, Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum. Support for the exhibition was generously provided by the Arthur Greenberg Exhibition Program Fund; the College of Arts & Sciences; the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts; and members of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum.
