ChinaSquare Presents Revolution
Li Luming, Aiming, oil on canvas, 150 x 200 cm, 59.05 x 78.74 in.
NEW YORK.-ChinaSquare presents Revolution, a group show curated by Fang Lei and Jonathan Goodman featuring Cao Xiaodong, Jing Kewen, Li Luming, Shen Jingdong, Su Xinping, Wang Yiqiong, Yang Qian, Yin Zhaoyang, Zhang Hongtu, Zhao Nengzhi and Zhong Biao. These artists, born during the Cultural Revolution, examine the legacy of Mao’s socialism in ironic and allegorical ways. As Mainland China embraces late capitalism, monuments and leaders once revered are judged and deconstructed. The participants in the show pay homage mostly to another time, when politics was not so easily engaged or made fun of. The artists’ nostalgic memories of youth are juxtaposed with the ideological revolutions that now take place everyday.

Fang Lei, a Beijing based independent curator since 1998, has curated and organized a number of exhibitions and events including the Beijing Biennale, Guangzhou Triennial, and Shanghai Biennale, etc.

Jonathan Goodman has been writing about contemporary Chinese art for more than a decade. Based in New York, he is currently teaching at the Pratt Institute and the Parsons School of Design. The opening reception will be held on Thursday December 13th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
