Shang Yixin, Wang Guangle, Xie Molin, Zhao Yao at Asian Art Museum, SF, CA

Asian Art Museum's special summer exhibition 28 Chinese offers glimpses of contemporary Chinese art through a group of 28 artists including Shang Yixin, Wang Guangle, Xie Molin and Zhao Yao. The exhibition premiered in Miami at the Rubell Family Collection on December 4, 2013 and was on view through August 1, 2014.


These artists have made a significant impact on the art world and expanded definitions of contemporary art in China. The exhibition features 48 artworks, revealing powerful responses to China today, as well as perspectives and attitudes towards tradition.


28 Chinese is the culmination of more than a decade's worth of exploration and research by art collectors Don and Mera Rubell. Between 2001 and 2012, the Rubells conducted six research trips to China, where they visited 100 artists' studios in Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Xi'an. The Rubells acquired artworks from 28 artists in a multiplicity of mediums, from painting and installation to photography and new media. Organized by guest curator Allison Harding, the Asian Art Museum's presentation will be the first exhibition on the West Coast for many of these artists.


Following the Asian Art Museum's presentation of 28 Chinese, the exhibition will travel to the San Antonio Museum of Art (September 5, 2015 to January 4, 2016).
