Gao Brothers Exhibit At The Kemper Museum

<i>Mao's Guilt</i>, 2009

When the Gao brothers show some of their more controversial art in Beijing, they have to keep the location secret, and notify their guests at the last minute via social media. But their upcoming exhibit at Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art is completely above ground.


Kansas City, MO – This will be the Gao brothers' first museum exhibit in the United States, and one of the most complicated that the Kemper Museum has ever taken on. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross spoke to Gao Zhen, Gao Qiang and curators about the show.

Gao Brothers: Grandeur and Catharsis runs through January 2, 2011 at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.
