Only Informing the Arrival of Spring

_20240306163210.jpg

Li Jianing's solo oil painting exhibition. In the dense jungle of life, where thorns abound, even if we try to evade and prepare in advance, we still find ourselves wounded and bruised on the cautious path forward when confronted by the rampant growth of sharp thorns. We battle with trepidation for the unpredictable next step, huddling in tiny tree hollows.

But when the mountain flowers bloom, you and I will surely leisurely observe the raging storms and feel the warmth in the sunny spots during the flower's morning and evening. Just like a gust of spring breeze in the warm winter, a glimpse of greenery in the spring, a slice of watermelon in the summer heat, and a tree laden with fruit in the autumn breeze—all refreshing to the soul when the gentle wind brushes past.

Until March 25, 2024

Tales of the South

_20240306162425.jpg

'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.
