DESCRIPTION

On May 18, 2013 the PinchukArtCentre (Kyiv, Ukraine) will present “China China”, a major group exhibition including eleven Chinese artists of different generations, focusing on the tension between individuality and collective thinking. A subject, which not only defined Chinese history and continuously shapes contemporary society but equally gains importance in the West. 

China China is an exhibition about two Chinas, about the present and the past and about choices for the future. Dealing with the continuous search for history and with a reality that is shifting from local to a global context. It highlights the different approach in the generation of artists living through the Cultural Revolution, who find their subject in researching the past while dealing with the present, and the new generation, who engages in an uprooted society, moving forward into a new social-cultural future.

With eleven artist-devoted spaces, PinchukArtCentre offers a complex view on how this theme developed across three generations of contemporary Chinese artists. The exhibition includes iconic work from of among others, Ai Weiwei and Chen Zhen together with major new produced works of Sun Yuan & Peng Yu, Xu Zhen and Cao Fei.
