Three Fun Facts With Sun Xun

Sun Xun is the latest subject of our Instagram interview series.

A month ago, we shared part one of our in-depth video interview with Sun Xun in conjunction with “The Time Vivarium,” his current show at Sean Kelly Gallery (see Sun Xun Taps Into History and Politics at Sean Kelly Gallery). Wednesday, we posted the second installment of the series, Sun Xun Finds It Impossible to Be a Foreigner in New York. Above we asked Xun a few less serious questions. We asked him about his first job, his favorite object, and who he would like to meet if he could meet anyone, dead or alive. Check it out.

Part of a series we created for Instagram, this microvideo joins others featuring some of our favorite artists, including Takashi Murakami (see Takashi Murakami’s Favorite Things), John Waters (see Why John Waters Loves the Wicked Witch of the West), and Moby (see Moby Says He Wants To Meet Jesus).
