exploring concepts of geography and nation-state

 

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum has announced the artists who have been commissioned to create works that entered its collection as part of The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative. This is the most recent of the Guggenheim’s initiatives to work with artists, scholars and curators from around the world. Coming from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan: Chia-En Jao, Kan Xuan, Sun Xun, Sun Yuan & Peng Yu, Tsang Kin-Wah, Yangjiang Group & Zhou Tao have produced works for an amazing group exhibition. These artists explore a range of mediums, including video, sculpture, installation, mixed media on paper, and participatory intervention. The retrospective on view until March 10th 2017, offers an heterogeneous view of contemporary art from China and focuses on tensions between individual narratives and the constructions of mainstream history.
