Liu Bolin

Bird's Nest, Olympic Stadium--Beijing, China

Now you see him...

He has been called "The Invisible Man," but Liu Bolin has gained international fame and his photographs are icons of the 21st century. Bolin was a little-known artist in 2005 when the Chinese government bulldozed through the artists' village of Suo Jia Cun in Beijing. As his own form of protest, Bolin painted himself and stood in front of the ruins, blending in with the debris. His subsequent work has earned him the nickname "The Invisible Man." (Watch Bolin's TED talk about social and political invisibility here.)

"Hiding in the City: Balloons" - LIU BOLIN
  • Liu Bolin
  • "Hiding in the City: Balloons"

Bolin will come to Boise on Friday, Jan. 30, for the opening of "Hiding in the City" at Boise Art Museum. Through an interpreter, Bolin will talk about his statements on politics and identity. The exhibit runs through Sunday, May 24, but act fast to get a ticket to see Bolin himself. Following his opening night appearance, he's not likely to appear in Boise again anytime soon.
