Li Tang Gallery presents Fiction Beyond Nonfiction, an online group exhibition from May 30 – July 31, 2022. We are keen to present a platform for artists working across disciplines to share their evolving visions of how digital and technology impact their practice. Subjects might include – but are not limited to – the ecosystem, social justice, decolonization, climate change, immigration, lifestyle, under-represented communities, and sustainability.

All stages of career artists were invited to submit their work for consideration by our guest jury judges. We had an overwhelming response to this call and received 334 artwork submissions from all over the world. The overall high quality of the submissions we received made the jurying process a difficult one. The online group exhibition is curated by the Li Tang team. It will be promoted on the Li Tang gallery website, social media, and press coverage in the United States and China.
