Visually Speaking

  • May 25, 2011 - September 14, 2011

Summary of Exhibition

In EAST / WEST: Visually Speaking, 12 Chinese artists focus on merging two diverging visual languages: East and West.

Further Information about the Exhibition

They reinterpret aesthetic visual traditions according to their perceptions and knowledge of European and American visual arts and appropriate iconic images such as Greek Hellenistic sculpture to the ubiquitous Pepsi logo.

While in some works the reference to Western culture seems adoring, especially to the visual culture lexicon, in other works it appears to parody the West, its cultural symbols and values.

The exhibition features contemporary works by Cai Lei, Cang Xin, The Luo Brothers, Ma Baozhong, Shen JingDong, Shi Liang, Sun Ping, Tang Zhigang, Zhang Hongtu and Zhong Biao.
