Exhibition Brief

In Still: Contemporary Works from a New Generation of Chinese Artists, Art+ Shanghai Gallery brings together four young Chinese artists in a group exhibition that celebrates the richness and complexity of the contemporary’s flittering moment. The four artists, Huang Yulong, Wei Xiaoguang, Zhang Wei, and Zhou Jie, are all mainland Chinese artists born in the 1980s whose works are representative of a new trend in Chinese art that combines the appreciation of stillness and reflection of the moment with a continuation of traditional thought, immersive depth, and a quiet aesthetic.

Their works of painting and sculpture play with visual perception and expectations of reality to explore a sense of underlying tension and creation. Life is experienced as a continual series of moments, with each vibrating between the past and future. Still: Contemporary Works from a New Generation of Chinese Artists is thus the pensive celebration of that tense, unsure moment of present potential.
