Bentu

Bentu - A selection of Chinese artists in a time of turbulence and transformations

This exhibition brings together 12 artists of different generations who live on mainland China. Using a wide variety of techniques and media, drawn from both local tradition and culture, as well as newer cutting edge technologies – sometimes associating with or confronting these – the artists reveal the complexities of a society that is in permanent mutation.
This is the first exhibition devoted to contemporary Chinese art in France in the past 10 years. It is co-organised with the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art of Beijing (UCCA Beijing).

Participating Artists: Cao Fei, Hao Liang, Hu Xiangqian, Liu Chuang, Liu Shiyuan, Liu Wei, Liu Xiaodong, Qiu Zhijie, Tao Hui, Xu Qu, Xu Zhen and Yang Fudong.

Curated by: Suzanne Pagé
Co-curated by: Laurence Bossé, Philip Tinari & Claire Staebler
