Bing at the Today Art Museum

Bing at the Today Art Museum
#Exhibitions

Through a multi-dimensional narrative which blends artistic exploration with visual representation, the exhibition dedicated to Xu Bing sheds light on the creative ideas and thematic questions at the basis of Dragonfly Eyes, the full-length film created by the artist focusing on our times, where conceptual art meets the cinema in a new and unusual manner. Nine keywords allow guests of the Today Art Museum to discover the working method of Xu Bing and better understand his artistic endeavours which are characterised by a dialogue between the social context and artistic creation. The nine keywords of World Picture can be subdivided in three correlated categories - the fundamental concepts of the artistic career of Xu Bing, the theoretical points of view most recurrent in the reviews of Dragonfly Eyes and, finally, the specific methods used in producing the full-length film. The exhibition also includes an in-depth look at the artistic language of Xu Bing in dialogue with his latest experiment in form.
