The Thoughts and Method of Xu Bing

The Thoughts and Method of Xu Bing
#Exhibitions

The Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art presents the largest and most complete exhibition of the works of Xu Bing in Beijing. The artist from Chongqing, born in 1955, is one of the major figures of the Chinese Avant-Garde movement, active until the 1980s. Besides being adored in his own Country, above all for his interdisciplinary approach, he is known internationally for his ability to merge conceptual art with new technology. The works of Xu Bing, in fact, are the result of a profound reflection on the mutation of society and are open, thanks to their complexity, to a multitude of interpretations connected to the contemporary world. Xu Bing has the ability to make art out of the most fascinating themes, such as language, its acquisition and its expression. It is in the rigid interpretation of language, diluted in the ambiguity of art, where the artist reveals his true genius.
