Over forty works ranging from oil on canvas to drawings to ink on paper, prints and even sculptures, all representing the personal creative nucleus of Yin Zhaoyang, born in 1970 in Nanyang, in the Henan Region, today, living and working in Beijing. Since the 1990s, the artist has experimented with various artistic languages and explored different semantic subjects, without fear of self-renewal or of deconstructing any stereotypical vision of his work, being highly praised from both commercial and academic perspectives. Part of the established curatorial line of the Long Museum, dedicated to giving space to China’s most significant voices in Contemporary Art, the exhibition also offers a body of new works with both an intense visual impact and size (over 7 metres) which, grouped with the other pieces, effectively demonstrate the oscillation of the artist between a pictorial language inspired by Western traditions and the Oriental aesthetic of landscape painting. The exhibition revisits some of the fundamental stages of Yin Zhaoyang’s career from 2015 to 2020, the year in which the artist came up with a new methodology, separating from figurative work as a means to itself in order to offer a universal reflection on nature, on landscapes, their natural cycles and how these are reflected in the human microcosm.
The Shanghai Center Theater is a theater in the beating heart of the modern city, the pedestrian thoroughfare of West Nanjing Road, right near the Bund - a cosmopolitan climate which hosts the domestic stage of the local acrobatic troupe, the world-famous Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe.
