Tales of the South


'Tales of the South' delves into the intricate and ever-evolving historical roots and contemporary realities of the southern region, nurturing artistic forms that defy simple definitions. When discussing locality or regional identity, we inevitably confront the clichés of identity and regional style. Dispersal becomes a solution, an inevitable outcome. 

This exhibition explores the impact of contextual changes, institutional reforms, shifts in media, and institutional fluctuations on southern art. We will retrace the development of southern art over the past 150 years, focusing on the blurred, controversial, and confrontational aspects of southern art, presenting audiences with a vivid panorama of southern art amidst ongoing fluctuations.

Everlasting Life: Xuelna Flower and Bird Painting Exhibition


Let's step into Mr. Xue's autumn! In the October Taihang Mountains, the hibiscus flowers bloom intoxicatingly; the mountains are adorned with red leaves, persimmons, pomegranates, and playful birds singing, while sturdy roosters roam the courtyard, and golden corn hangs on the mountain walls of the farmhouse. We can almost hear the crickets and unnamed insects singing. These are natural scenes brimming with the artist's positive outlook on life and art, filled with the joy of laborers' harvests. He blends the emotional resonance of an artist into the symphony of the times.

The exhibition delves into the alternative exploration of the Buddhist teachings cited in the "Analects of Confucius" and the "Avatamsaka Sutra." As artists reach the age of forty, they instinctively sense the need to transcend external disturbances, embracing inner harmony and letting go of attachments. Just as travelers passing through a wayside inn, they recognize the impermanence of worldly pursuits and seek refuge in the stillness of their inner being. Through their artwork, they navigate the interplay between transience and permanence, echoing the teachings of the Buddha on the nature of existence.

A Rock Poet Between the Spiritual and Natural World


Born in 1959 in the UK, Billy Childish is a multi-talented artist and writer, known for his prolific output in both music and literature. With hundreds of albums and dozens of novels and poems to his name, Childish's creative process is characterized by its directness, speed, and raw energy. His dynamic paintings, often created in a single burst without any revisions, reflect his unique artistic vision.

In an exciting collaboration, the He Art Museum will present the curated exhibition "A Rock Poet Between the Spiritual and Natural World" starting from March 23, 2024. This exhibition will juxtapose Billy Childish's works with depictions of landscapes by Chinese contemporary artists, initiating a spiritual journey that traverses East and West, engaging in dialogue with the realms of nature and spirituality.
