Ma Liang, My Circus I (C-print, 2003.)

The Virtual Salon: Chinese Transnational Photographers in the Digital Age (2006) was a photography exhibit of works by the Chinese Artist Network (CAN). Through an examination of CAN’s work, Virtual Salon showed how the digital revolution had affected artists and challenged the discourse surrounding contemporary art at that time. Ma Liang, one of the featured artists (the exhibition also included photographers Felix Tian, Wang Yishu and Xie Wenyue), is known for his theatrical images, filled with costumes and props and shot on unusual sets.
