China Discourse: Histories, Technologies, Ecologies, and Grace

Changsha Municipal Museum, Changsha, China

Tan Guobin Museum of Contemporary Art, Changsha, China

October 17, 2015 through December 16, 2015

As the fifth Art Changsha Biennale, China Discourse: Histories, Technologies, Ecologies, and Grace attempts to understand how drastically different perspectives coexist in this complex world, and how they can fertilize each other and stimulate imagination by discursive confrontation.  The exhibition was designed to present the work of six artists – New York-based Cai Guo Qiang, Francesco Clemente, and Tom Sachs, along with Beijing-based Wang Guangyi, Zhu Jia, and Wang Youshen.  The six retrospective exhibitions jointly represent a cross section of an emerging global culture that is simultaneously local and global, personal and universal.  As the first Art Changsha presenting international contemporary art, China Discourse: Histories, Technologies, Ecologies, and Grace embodies the fast development of contemporary art in China, and it is testimony to the concrete fact of China's commitment to international discourse.

中国话语:历史、科技、生态与优雅是第五届长沙艺术双年展主题,尝试理解差异巨大的各种视角如何在这一复杂的世界中共存,不同的视角如何相互滋养、如何在杂乱无章的碰撞中激发想象。此次展览计划展出6位艺术家的作品——来自纽约的蔡国强、弗朗切斯科·克莱门特、汤姆·萨克斯和来自北京的王广义、朱加和王友身。六场个人作品回顾展共同展示了新兴全球文化的交叉地带,这种新兴文化既是地方的,也是全球的,既是个人的也是世界的。作为第一届展示国际当代艺术的艺术长沙活动,中国话语:历史、科技、生态与优雅体现了中国当代艺术的快速发展,也是中国致力于国际事业的具体证明。
