"RMB City Opera" Explores Play, Romance, and Identity through Second Life

Feb 24, 2011

With the opening of the Bloch Building at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the new spaces within its gleaming white walls seemed to cry out for art as fresh and cutting edge as the structure itself.

Kansas City, MO – At the building's mid-section is The Project Space, designed to house rotating exhibits. For a new video installation, the space has been converted into a kind of mini-theater for a work by a young Chinese artist that's having its first viewing in the United States. KCUR's Steve Walker reports.
