Picasso: Birth of a Genius June 15 – September 1, 2019 UCCA Center of Contemporary Art, Beijing From June 15 – September 1, 2019, UCCA Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, presents Picasso – Birth of a Genius, the most significant exhibition of work by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) ever to take place in China. Curated by Emilia Philippot, Head of Collections, Musée national Picasso-Paris, the exhibition has been conceived and organized specifically for this presentation at UCCA and incl
Yin Xiuzhen’s works have been accorded femininity for the “soft” nature of her signature material: reclaimed fabrics from secondhand clothes. But the artist’s womanly virtues perhaps culminate in her “enterable” spaces, whose employ seems to have reached a crescendo in Collective Subconscious, 2007, currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art. For the piece, viewers are invited to step inside a patchwork caterpillar adjoining two ends of a nostalgic Chinese “breadbox car,” a minibus whose c

New York “Soft Machines” THE PACE GALLERY 510 West 25th Street July 14–August 26 Evoking William S. Burroughs’s 1961 novel The Soft Machine—which imagined the fate of a world controlled by forces like sex, violence, drugs, and fierce cultural hegemony—the sixteen works in “Soft Machines” illustrate the way these same forces insidiously direct day-to-day experience and can subsequently control an individual’s fate. Through the Claw, 2011, a performance by Kate Gilmore, debuted during the opening
The Pace Gallery's gamble in choosing young multidisciplinary artist Sterling Ruby for their first solo by a Western artist at their Beijing outpost has paid off. What seemed a rather surprising choice — even to Ruby himself — has delivered the gallery a trifecta of critical, popular, and business success.

The bamboo structures may not look it, but for the artist they represent the intransigence and impermanence of modern China – and his anger at those who seek to portray other, “totalitarian” visions of its people. Beijing’s Pace Gallery Cell exhibition displays 40 bamboo embroidery artworks by Qiu Zhijie, 43, who claims the simple medium reflects the quintessential characteristics of Chinese people. A graduate of the print department of the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, in

Just days before Diane von Furstenberg was scheduled to have a warts-and-all photo taken by renowned artist Chuck Close, she suffered a skiing accident that left her with a broken nose and dark bruises suffusing her trademark cheekbones. But six weeks later, despite some residual swelling, von Furstenberg strode into the photography studio for her proverbial close-up. The clock was ticking, as the photograph was the last to be taken for “Diane von Furstenberg: Journey of a Dress,” her upcoming e

Critic Stephen Knudsen of the Huffington Post recently listed Li Songsong’s solo exhibition at Pace London in his “Top Ten Contemporary Art Exhibits in 2013.” The list also includes James Turrell at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Pace London’s exhibition reaffirmed Li Songsong as one of the most important artists in Beijing today. The work addresses both past and present by referencing collective memories of the Chinese people that have relevance in today’s political climate.

Tangibles outweigh any abstractions that might have been promised in Li Songsong’s latest solo Show “Abstract” at Pace Beijing. Li Songsong’s trademark style of painting, an impasto of creamy pigment layered upon canvas as well as his signature content, a single photographic source spliced into juxtaposed fields of colours and canvas in an inchoate reconstruction of the original image find in its final object an overwhelming physicality. The texture presents itself so wrought and thick making it
Juicy painting and the big visual statement are both alive and well in China today. If you have any doubt, check out the 11 large-scale oil paintings by Li Songsong now on view, through Aug. 5, at Pace Gallery's 534 West 25th Street location. The show, Li's first U.S. solo, provides American viewers an impressive introduction to the 38-year-old artist, who is well known in the People's Republic for super-thick paint and blocky compositions that seem to waver halfway between their photographic so
This spring, celebrated Chinese artist Li Songsong will be presenting his first solo show in the United States. From May 6 to August 5, his work will be on exhibit at the Pace Gallery’s space at 534 W. 25th St. Photographs are often considered irrefutable records of the past. When these records are altered, how does this then alter one’s perception of preceding events? This is a question that Li has been examining throughout his already highly acclaimed career. By applying impasto painting techn

In 1981, a Yale undergraduate named Maya Lin was catapulted to global prominence when her design for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., was chosen over 1,441 other entries. Her striking creation — a black stone gash in the earth inscribed with the names of more than 58,000 American soldiers killed in the Vietnam War — remains one of the world’s most moving war monuments. Now, three decades later, Lin has turned her attention to what she calls her “last memorial” — a global multim

SHANGHAI — A triptych oil painting by Zhang Xiaogang sold for $10.1 million on Sunday at a Sotheby’s auction in Hong Kong. The sale broke the record for a piece by a living Chinese artist, and was the latest sign of China’s phenomenal ascent in the global art market. Mr. Zhang, who is 52 and based in Beijing, is now among a handful of living artists to have a work sell for more than $10 million. Less than a decade ago, many of his works were selling for $60,000 or less. He joins a group that inc

Sterling Ruby (b. 1972) makes a strong impression. His esthetic is masculine and a little bruised, antisocial and smart, grounded in its materials, and seems completely unpredictable. His varied output includes 18-foot-tall phallic “stalagmites” dripping with seemingly viscous urethane; rough-hewn ceramics with primordial glazes; paintings done with Robitussin-red nail polish or graffiti-like spray-paint; sculptures of smudged and scratched white minimalist forms; bus-sized cages on wheels; and
VAMPIRE” MAY MARK the first time Pace Beijing has held a Western artist’s solo exhibition, but this is not Sterling Ruby’s first show in China, he having also made an appearance in UCCA’s 2008 group exhibition, “Stray Alchemists.” In that show, his piece, a nine-meter-tall monument, took up almost the entirety of UCCA’s central hall. The piece was named Recondite, appropriate given that it provoked precisely that reaction in Chinese audiences. For his latest showing in Beijing, Ruby has prepared

The Daily Beast, September 24, 2012: Li Songsong, an old master back from the future. At Pace gallery in Beijing, the well-known Chinese artist Li Songsong is presenting this strange sculpture/painting/installation. It consists of 91 oddly shaped aluminum panels (many look like the staircase that folds into the fuselage of a small jet) all covered in Li’s signature thick paint and assembled as a tunnel. It’s kind of Frank Auerbach meets Space 1999, and it’s not easy to parse what it might mean o
Financial Times, July 2, 2012: Ever since New York’s Pace Gallery set up a temporary base in London in 2010, the art world has been agog to discover where its permanent space would be. Now the news is out – Pace is hiring a 9,000 sq ft gallery in the west wing of 6 Burlington Gardens from the Royal Academy, which will open just before the Frieze art fair in October. Pace has a 15-year lease on the gallery, which will be renovated by architect Sir David Chipperfield as part of a “master plan” for
From Artforum to the New York Times’ Style mag, an army of adjectives attend reviews of Sterling Ruby’s work — “occultish,” hostile, sincere, viral, transgressive, meaningful…. Roberta Smith described him as “one of the most interesting artists to emerge in this century.” Coverage in the art press can make it difficult to approach an artist’s work without expectations of some kind or having earmarked, even subconsciously, an impression of it. To walk into an exhibition thus unmarked was not an u

The Observer has learned that Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara is now represented in New York by the Pace Gallery. Mr. Nara, 52, emerged in the 1990s in a wave of Pop art coming out of Japan; his paintings and sculptures, often depicting children, are influenced by comics and punk rock music. His work was the subject of a major exhibition at New York’s Asia Society Museum last year. “He has great interest in the classical contemporary painters like de Kooning and Rothko,” Pace’s president, Marc Gl

The last time that the Chinese art star Zhang Huan made a public appearance here, just over a decade ago, he was lying face down on an uprooted tree, naked, covered with dog food. A pack of nine dogs, invited to participate in his performance, fought for the chance to lick it off. One bit the artist. This week, Zhang flew into town from Shanghai for the dedication ceremony for "Three Heads, Six Arms": a 15-ton, two-story tall sculpture, considered the artist's largest to date, which has been ins
Chinese international art star Zhang Huan sounds wistful when he says in an interview, "It is my dream for my art to be accessible to all. But reality is cruel." Every day, the 46-year-old Mr. Zhang and more than 100 assistants keep busy on increasingly ambitious projects: from creating paintings and sculptures from incense ash, to fabricating giant metal statues, to planning multiple public events and installations. He's among a handful of the most recognized Chinese artists. Most of them, "lik
Zhang Huan’s film To Raise the Water Level in a Fishpond will be presented at the Venice Performance Art Week held from 13 to 20 December 2014. Filmed in Beijing in 1997, this group performance of 40 migrant workers will be shown throughout the week at the Palazzo Moro.
Currently on view at the Pace Gallery in Beijing is an exhibition of recent works by Zhang Huan. Most renowned for his performance artwork, in recent years he has returned to working in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, and large-scale installations. “Free Tiger Returns to the Mountains” includes ash paintings (works made of a mixture of ashes collected from temples and adhesive) and cowhide sculptures. The paintings were created from his imagination instead using a photographi
Zhang Xiaogang’s new solo exhibition opens at Pace Beijing on December 13. His new works combine traditional Chinese motifs alongside contemporary elements. “I found everything so remote but, at the same time, familiar when I occasionally looked into the mountains, rocks, pine trees and plums depicted in old literati paintings. My innermost feeling which was awakened by the same mountains, rocks, pine trees and plums has been totally and utterly changed. Moreover, like an apparition, it hides
