Xu Bing - Brooklyn Tee

  • $25.00
  • $22.50 for Members

The exhibition "One: Xu Bing" celebrates Xu Bing’s close relationship with Brooklyn, where he lived in the 1990s and maintains a studio today. 

Xu Bing developed “square word calligraphy” as a system for writing English when he came to New York. Although the rectangular units of writing resemble Chinese characters, each is actually a word in English. 

Created specifically for the Brooklyn Museum, the artist Xu Bing has made this character of “Brooklyn” written in the artist-invented Square Word Calligraphy, reflecting Xu Bing’s experience living between two cultures while in New York. 

Available in sizes S, M, L, and XL. Please specify size when placing your order. Tote bag sold separately.
