Must See Beijing

Tuesday, June 30

  • Ends July 11th 2015

  • In his first solo show at Beijing Commune, Fan Shuru unites everything from earthworks to Minimalist precepts to ink art traditions. The exhibition includes both a continuous inked line on paper that, formed over consecutive days, becomes a visual diary of sorts, and a notched, marked, and grafted tree branch that functions as a document of humanity's urge to transform nature into objects.

  • Texts, videos, and installation all come together in the latest exhibition of Cheng Ran, who created the work on view during a residency at the Rijksakademie in the Netherlands. Cheng’s footage explores film conventions and fables alike. Meanwhile, his installation of a sailboat illuminated by film-set lighting makes its Beijing debut. Fittingly, the title of Cheng’s exhibition—“In Course of the Miraculous”—references the famous final performance by Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, who disappeared while crossing the Atlantic in 1975.

  • UCCA’s latest exhibition features He Xiangyu’s ongoing “Palate Project,” for which the artist translates the ridges and grooves of his palate into images. Three hundred and sixty-five paintings made with watercolor, mixed media, and ink on paper—and presented in six groups—merge identifiable anatomical forms with monochromatic fields in one of the museum’s exhibitions designed to present emerging Chinese artists to a wider audience.

  • Ai Weiwei has designed and realized his first-ever solo exhibition in China at both Galleria Continua and Tang Contemporary Art. After disassembling an ancestral temple from the Ming Dynasty, Ai meticulously rebuilt the structure to occupy both sites by crossing the wall that separates them, forcing viewers to consider the structure in parts rather than as a whole.

  • Beijing-based Xu Qu’s latest project—a fenced-in tennis court—is a continuation of the artist’s ongoing fascination with objects in motion. The first large-scale outdoor installation for the artist, who was educated at Braunschweig University, “Tennis Court” is part of Taikang Space’s multidisciplinary Terrace Project, a plein-air site meant to encourage cross-disciplinary artistic experimentation.
