On the afternoon of November 25, 2023, the opening ceremony of By RoSSo Art Space was successfully held at C·park Haishu Green Space. On the inaugural day, numerous collectors, artists, and media friends attended the event to witness the birth of this art space.
RoSSo President Gala and Carry On expressed in their speeches, "By RoSSo is a space representing the purity and ideals of RoSSo Art Study and will closely connect with RoSSo Art Study to provide more possibilities for students and young people." They also shared their vision for the space. C·Park CEO Pan emphasized, "As a subsidiary of RoSSo Art Study, By RoSSo serves as a creative hub for young artists, bringing the strength of the new generation into the art ecosystem and playing a crucial role in the ecological chain." Project leader Gao Shubo then highlighted the uniqueness of the project and the significance of using vanished rural elements as the theme for the inaugural exhibition. Finally, the founder and senior leaders of RoSSo joined hands to cut the ribbon, marking this historic moment.
"Advanced Rural Style" Art Debut
By RoSSo's inaugural exhibition, "Nostalgia For Rural Wonderland" showcased 27 representative works from five outstanding artists. The artists include Li Guochen, a graduate of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Chen Ce and Yang Yue, graduates of UAL, Wang Yuzheng, and Z. Ziyi from RCA. The works span various mediums such as painting, photography, video, and installations, deeply exploring the diversity of Chinese rural culture through diverse exhibition forms and content.
The theme emphasizes the crucial role of "land" in rural culture and expresses profound concerns about the loss of identity due to the disconnection from the land. Through elements like Hillism, the exhibition prompts viewers to reflect on historical societal traumas. The exhibition focuses on probing the boundaries of exhibition media, transforming the exhibition into an "event-show" where the works "happen," and the specific time and space of the exhibition intersect with artistic interventions, making the exhibition and artworks an integral whole.
The exhibition has been open to the public since November 25 and welcomes everyone to the art space to witness the artistic expression.
