Birds of Metal in Flight

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City hosted a closing celebration for its exhibition Phoenix: Xu Bing at the Cathedral on February 25.  Xu Bing's (CRF 1998) Phoenix sculpture is in its final weeks at the Cathedral.

The event brought together poets from the US and China for a reading under the Phoenix.  Featured among the readers were Bei Dao (CRF 1999), Xi Chuan (CRF 2006), and Zhai Yongming (CRF 2004).  Xu Bing provided the closing remarks.
