> DESCRIPTION

In the latest addition to the “Curated By…” series, UCCA welcomes the cutting edge of Chinese photography into its exhibition space.  Guest curator Rong Rong – celebrated photographer and co-founder of Three Shadows Photography Art Center – introduces raw and adventurous work from Qiu and Ren Hang, two rising young stars in the field of Chinese photography.  Setting up a fascinating dialogue of opposition, Rong Rong leads us into a landscape that transcends the inner worlds and external environments of these artists, he reveals a boundless visual terrain of discrete moments captured in black and white and color. Qiu, born in 1974 in Guangdong, provides a calm and poetic anchor to the exhibition with his technically accomplished and quietly introspective black and white photographs. The brilliant color and raw energy of Ren Hang’s photography forms a vivid counterpoint to Qiu’s work. Born in 1987 in Jinlin, Ren Hang takes the rarely-glimpsed and poorly-understood culture of contemporary youth and lays it bare with exploratory portraits of young Chinese men and women. Together, Qiu and Ren Hang offer us a tantalizing glimpse into the dynamic new frontier of Chinese photography.
