KANSAS CITY — The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City will host a show of the work of two brothers whose art is often censored in China.
The show, "Brothers: Grandeur and Catharsis" features the art of Gao Qiang and Gao Zhen. It begins Sept. 17 and runs until Jan. 2, 2011. Admission is free.
A Kemper Museum spokeswoman says the collection is the Gaos' first museum exhibit in the U.S.
Much of the Gaos' art has been inspired by their family's experience during China's Cultural Revolution in the 1960s and 1970s. The museum says the brothers' pieces are often controversial in China and have been censored by government authorities there.
The pieces in the exhibit include sculptures, paintings and photographs.
