For the past two years Gallery Yang has hosted a series of exhibitions curated by Bao Dong, which he has titled Painting Lessons. In these Bao Dong has presented certain discrete aspects of the nature of current art production in China. In terms of format, the title places the emphasis on painting, but the results in the gallery spaces expand on this to include sculpture and installation. The “lessons” that the curator proposes in this series aim to “go back to specific issues... [more]

My disappointment with this show stems from the fact that it genuinely appears to be an interesting presentation, focusing on a well-selected group of mid-scale installations. The curator has avoided the temptation to simply place them together within the gallery space, instead creating appropriate, custom-built spaces that the works inhabit nicely. But it is unfortunate to have to say that Developing Phantom falls down on a conceptual level in its lack of coherent critical engagement with the a... [more]

Doubt is a concept close to my heart (for all the right – and wrong reasons). It is a state of being separated from fixed ideas, moving into a region where certainties flicker out like an ageing fluorescent strip. I feel this movement into doubt is a primary activity of art: simulation, illusion, questioning, all the while leaving the audience open to new thoughts and ways of thinking. The artist does things and I ask: “Why are they doing this?” Doubt is a region of productivity, of investigation, of cross... [more]

The politics of abstraction tread a very fine line. The style can be considered as a rejection of the illusions of representation in favor of a more direct engagement with perception, material and form; or, it can be perceived to be a rescinding of responsibility from making clearly defined statements. Breaking Away, Boers-Li Gallery’s second major group show since decamping to 798, presents a variety of approaches to abstraction by Chinese artists and thereby demonstrates the persisting attrac...

Independent curator Bao Dong is increasingly seen as the emerging face of critical art production and interpretation in Beijing, so it was met with some excitement when he announced that his latest exhibition project, Conception as Enzyme, would feature some two dozen artists of multiple generations and styles in an exploration of conceptual practice today. The list of artists included ranges from market stars like Xu Zhen’s MadeIn corporation to rising figures like Jiang Zhi and Zhang L... [more]

Jiang Zhi at Platform China Contemporary Art Institute (Platform China) September 5th, 2010 - October 17th, 2010
Posted 9/20/10

In “Attitude,” the current show at Platform China, Jiang Zhi’s works do not only show his attitude but expose something under the surface of apparent reality. Born in 1971, Jiang Zhi is a video artist who pays close attention to social reality, and hence his works touch intimately on the problems of real life.  So piercing is his gaze, in fact, that people might feel embarrassed by his merciless vision or laugh at his black humor.  Regardless of the reaction, he causes audiences to rethink everyday...
