Xu Bing is featured in the first season of the “The Artist Project” by The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

In this episode Xu Bing voices his thoughts on one of his favourite artist’s works, Jean-François Millet’s Haystacks: Autumn (ca. 1874)

The Artist Project is an online web series in which artists are given an opportunity to respond to one of the many art pieces housed in the Metropolitan Museum.

The webpage states:

“In this online series, artists reflect on what art is, what inspires them from across 5,000 years of art, and in so doing, they reveal the power of a museum and The Met. Their unique and passionate ways of seeing and experiencing art encourage all museum visitors to look in a personal way.

Over the course of five seasons, The Artist Project  will share the perspectives of one hundred artists with the public, telling us what they see when they look at The Met.”
