Whether viewing a mountain in Mongolia via iPad video or examining the fine ink lines proscribing a murder of crows, a newcomer to Zhang Meng's quiet work quickly becomes lost in contemplation. Meng, who is dean of the School of Digital Media Arts at the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, explores collisions of technology and tradition in his work. His figures, not surprisingly, occupy a liminal space in the imagination and enjoy free reign. The exhibition opens on Monday, and there will be a public reception from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, January 8.
