Dreamflying is by LiLi Nacht and Yidan Zeng, from the collaborative Kai Pa Ti 开趴体 show and residency by the MengCheng 梦城团 Collective.
Kai Pa Ti 开趴体 was on view from July 23-29, 2023, serving as a culminating exhibition of Meng 梦城团 Cheng Collective’s residency at Crosstown Arts. The title of the show means to “throw a party” in Chinese, which is how our families would refer to potluck gatherings from our childhood. The exhibition took place in our studio spaces, which we transformed into a family home with a living room, dining room, and kitchen. The works included documentation and artifacts from our summer potluck series, like the dining table and ceramics set, ancestral altar, and photographs from the dinners. Also on view were individual works, including drawings, paintings, prints, sculptures, and textile pieces made by the artists in the collective. Our goal was to invite the Memphis community into the space we had created, and share our collective work, conversations, connections, rituals, and healing we created and experienced over the summer.
