28 Chinese is the culmination of the Rubells’ six research trips to China between 2001 and 2012 where they visited one hundred artists’ studios in Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Xi'an and acquired artwork from twenty-eight artists.
These artists will be represented by paintings, photographs, sculptures and video installations. This will be the first exhibition in North America for many of these artists. The oldest artist in the exhibition was born in 1954 and the youngest was born in 1986. A fully illustrated, 262 page catalog in Chinese and English with text from all of the artists will accompany the exhibition as well as a complementary audio tour. This exhibition will occupy the Foundation’s 28 galleries, 40,000 sq foot museum.
All of the artwork in the exhibition is from the permanent collection.
To celebrate the opening of 28 Chinese, Jennifer Rubell will be presenting her annual breakfast project: a new, large-scale, food-based installation titled Faith. The press preview for Faith will be held on Wednesday, December 4, 9am to noon. The official opening is Thursday, December 5, 9am to noon. Faith is made possible by illycaffè.
