Inside China | Origin
[Inside China | Origin] Inside China – L’Intérieur du Géant is curated by Palais de Tokyo’s Jo-ey Tang in consultation with K11 Art Foundation appointed curator Wang Chunchen. Tang travelled around ten cities, from Hong Kong to Wuhan, shanghai to Beijing, and other places in greater china throughout 2014 for the exhibition, with the idea of discovering contemporary artists who have not been widely seen in the international context. He encountered a number of artists working with and responding to overproduction and monumentality in their use of materials, as well as to the rapid developments in the urban flux of their surroundings. The five selected artists all present vastly different works, in various mediums and contexts, yet are able to present a micro and macro view of what it is like to be inside china.
