A vision of San Francisco is composed of stainless-steel kitchenware — representing, curator Jeff Kelley says, what Chinese gold miners "had to settle for in the service industries" during the gold rush. Kelley organized the Zhan Wang show at the Asian Art Museum. Wang uses the metal to comment on the Chinese dimension of the California Gold Rush. His exhibition was shown recently at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.
