Moving and Still   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Yang Fudong at OCT Contemporary Art Terminal (OCAT) - Shanghai September 30th, 2012 - January 3rd, 2013
Posted 1/20/13
Yang Fudong’s solo show in Shanghai shifts the balance of his work away from the video installations onto his photographs, in the process proving the intimate connections but also the disparities between his moving and still images. The collection of prints that form the bulk of this exhibition include still shots from Yang Fudong’s films as well as his stand-alone photographs from across his whole career. Yang’s photographic work has always been a counterpart to his films, in that it also... [more]
A creeping feeling of familiarity   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Yang Fudong at Marian Goodman Gallery March 28th, 2012 - April 28th, 2012
Posted 4/7/12
Yang Fudong is making the boundary between painting and film seem about as sturdy and secure as an old split rail fence in an open field with a tornado whipping on the horizon. Both of his two new short pieces on view at Goodman’s gallery are presented entirely in shades black as ink and silvery white, as a traditional Chinese painting would be. No character in either film speaks; communication is achieved in glances and gestures, while narrative arcs build out of suggested and implied... [more]
Yang Fudong at Parasol Unit   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Yang Fudong at Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art September 12th, 2011 - November 6th, 2011

Projections. A LOT of projections. And even, projections inside projections. The second major solo exhibition by Chinese artist and film maker Yang Fudong at Parasol Unit is a display of dense monochromatic, projected moving images, stylized to draw from the classical and the modern, the images portraying the painterly and the digitial. The first room contains Fifth Night, a new seven-screen video installation, featuring synchronized images, of the same scene, shot from different angles.... [more]
Waterworld   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Yang Fudong, Geng Jianyi, Wu Shanzhuan at ShanghART H-space September 7th, 2011 - October 24th, 2011
Posted 9/15/11
Curated by LEAP Editor Philip Tinari and featuring big name artists Yang Fudong, Wu Shanzhuan and Geng Jianyi, ‘Waterworks’ was an eagerly-awaited exhibition, part of the cluster of openings at M50 just before SH Contemporary. The exhibition’s title is born of an unrealised installation by Geng Jianyi from 1987 called . For the current show, water is enlisted as the starting-point for the works of the three artists, all of which in some way link to the idea of water as a core substance, and... [more]
I Know Something About Love   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Yang Fudong, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Shirin Neshat, Christodoulos Panayiotou at Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art March 9th, 2011 - May 22nd, 2011

          On some level I suspect we all think we know a little about love, or at least the fundamentals of human relationships. Some get lucky and fall for the one next door, whilst it takes the rest of us – the vast majority – a few more goes before the right one makes their entrance. With each fall we learn a bit more, not only about how best to pick ourselves up, but also what we need in a soul mate. I would imagine that the four artists who have contributed to this show have lived... [more]
Pillowtalk from ShanghART   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

  It was hard to not feel that the exhibition “Beds,” at ShangART, was just a lazy attempt to showcase a number of old works of 13 gallery artists done over the past 15 years.  While the putative theme of the show might have provided some unity of focus for the choice of works, it didn’t even attempt this feat and, to the contrary, the idea of “beds” never rose to the level of theme, yet alone, concept. The lack of serious intention was announced immediately in the half-lucid (but far from... [more]
Shanghai in Chicago   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

        For most of us, the artists working in China have only been accessible across the internet, magazines, or other media.  Fortunately, there’s been a subtle wave of exhibitions featuring Chinese art in Chicago this year, the most notable being the sculpture in Millennium Park and the large survey at the Chicago Cultural Center “The Big World: Recent Art from China.”  Joining these exhibitions is the Museum of Contemporary Photography’s (MoCP) survey of Shanghai artists, “Reversed...
