Got this in my mail today for a visual art exhibition in New York. Unfortunately, I’m halfway across the globe!
ChinaSquare Gallery New York is pleased to present Germinators, a group featuring Cao Jingping, Chen Wei, Li Jikai, Liao Yibai, Ma’chunfu, Qu Jiehen, Unmask, Wang Haiyang, Wang Tiantian, Wang Yaqiang, and Zhang Peng.
Germinators includes the work of 11 up-and-coming artists from China and Taiwan, whose work deeply addresses and begins to strip bare the reality of the radical change and societal restructuring that is playing out across the domestic landscape today. Much like a seed nestled deep within the earth that gradually sends out shoots struggling to break free in pursuit of the sun, the work presented in Germinators is equally engaged in the germination of a wholly new social landscape that grows in leaps and bounds as it both analyzes that growth and becomes part of it in equal measure.
