The Chinese Media Bia Art: He is just playing an artist named Yi Que

Chinese Media:Bill and I think of ourselves as two old rocks left over from the last century, and we don't know what's going on now. In line with the attitude of injecting new perspectives and fields rather than focusing on a single art form, we are very honored to invite Yi Que—a curator and artist friend—to discuss with us in this issue of Tissuepaper. "Conceptual art" is an art form that we don't know much about. Since then, Tissuepaper will continue to cooperate with Yique, hoping to bring more diverse perspectives to readers.
