Currently on view at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing is a major mid-career survey of mercurial Chinese artist Xu Zhen, an irreverent artist with a voracious appetite for global information and a unique ability to produce work across multiple platforms and media, Xu Zhen (b. 1977) is the key figure of the Shanghai art scene and a foundational figure for the generations of Chinese artists born since 1980. Including over 50 installation pieces, 10 videos, 40 painting and collage works, and several performances, together filling UCCA’s signature Great Hall, this exhibition spans Xu Zhen’s early works made in his own name beginning in the late 1990s, works produced under the “contemporary art creation company” MadeIn Company which he founded in 2009, as well as major new pieces produced specially for this exhibition under MadeIn Company’s newly launched brand “Xu Zhen.”
Xu Zhen is on view through April, 2014.
