This autumn I have the pleasure and opportunity to be exposed at the contemporary art exhibition « Redefining the city with context, beyond the wall » in the Xi’an Art Museum in China.
For this exhibition, I was invited to create and present a series of photographs on that specific theme. I extended a series started two years ago with new photographs made during my stay in China this summer.
This huge contemporary art exhibition is considered as the biggest made in Xi’an so far. The exhibition, made on multiple sites, including the Museum, invited 70 artists representative of the contemporary art from all over China, as well as foreign artists with big names in the domain of sculpture, installation and contemporary painting from Japan, Korea, Italy and among them, me.
The exhibition at the Xi’an Art Museum is large-scale. Critics and museum directors come from all over the world for this occasion. The exhibition organized in Xi’an is very important from the point of view of the representation with more than 70 artists invited and more than 5’000’000 followers.
It has been an unforgettable experience with beautiful encounters and exchanges that have enriched my perception of China and its contemporary creation.
Xi’an is the capital of Shaanxi Province with a population of 12 million inhabitants is one of the oldest cities in China. It is the starting point of the Silk Road and home of the Terracotta Army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang.
The exhibition is open until November 30th. Don’t miss it if your are in the region. It’s really impressive!
