The Chinese government’s huge investment on solar technology in recent years is often the envy of many environmental groups. But one community recently forced a solar panel plant to shut down after protesting against air and water pollution tied to the facility. So just how dirty is China's green energy boom?

Korean artist Do Ho Suh's work explores themes of dislocation, memory, and the measurement of time and space. His new show at Lehmann Maupin Gallery, on view until October 22, features fabric versions of objects from his New York apartment, drawings of the staircases of each residence he's lived in since 1974, and a resin model of his childhood home in Korea nesting inside an apartment building in Providence, RI. APF's Leyla Mei spoke with the artist recently at the gallery, where he discussed his idea of home and his movement, both physical and metaphysical, through cultures in the US, UK, and Korea.
