The Art of New Media in China at How Art Museum

The Art of New Media in China at How Art Museum
#Exhibitions

Feng Mengbo, Wang Jianwei and Zhang Peili are the three pioneers hosted by the How Art Museum within the high-profile interdisciplinary exposition Move on China 2019, the first appointment of a broader three-year program looking at the world, thirty years after the start of the World Wide Web and the famous exhibition China Avant/Garde. The latter, in particular, which took place in Beijing in 1989 at the National Art Museum of China, represents a key moment in the Chinese contemporary art, marking the change brought about by the development of video languages and digital art. Move on China 2019 deals with some founding themes of the contemporary debate, in particular, the difference between the central and the marginal, and the relation between technology, the future and community. The strong experimental quality and the pioneering intuition of the three artists hosted at How Art Museum, each with their own individual perceptions, assure a highly stimulating experience. Feng Mengbo encourages a reflection upon modern times and identity, through electronic games, interactive installations, videos and musical performances, highlighting the relation between technology and aesthetics. Wang Jianwei’s work subverts and reconstructs subjectivity, which is conveyed to the viewer through hypertextual connections. Zhang Peili offers a discourse on the transmission of information, the dislocation of public and private space and the distortion of the meaning of seeing and being seen.
