Schneider Gallery is excited to present a group show of contemporary
Chinese photographers whose work reflects various sectors and aspects
of life in China.
The artists Wu Qi, Jian Jiang, and Qiu Zhen each use their unique and deft photography skills to capture different viewpoints of their Chinese surroundings. Recently, China’s rapid transitions have juxtaposed its rich historical, cultural traditions with the modernization of massive growth and construction. As the face of this land transforms, its art reflects how these grand shifts have affected its people. As individuals struggle to grasp this ever-changing world, while also thriving on some aspects of its proliferation, artists such as Wu Qi, Jian Jiang and Qiu Zhen each illuminate this unique moment in different manners. For instance, Jian Jiang’s soulful portraiture lends an honest and touching view of day-to-day Chinese life, while the mystique of Wu Qi’s night photography dramatizes his city surroundings. In addition, Qiu Zhen’s poignant photos are a deeply personal reflection on the isolation and solemnity often bred in a massive urban landscape, such as Beijing.
