From March 8 to April 13, 2019, the Liusa Wang Gallery brings together some thirty young emerging Chinese artists, all living in Europe.
Through this exhibition Yellow Reflection, the artists express their refusal of a marginalization of their ethnicity by the Westerners and realize an introspection of their identity.
The 30 artists use various inspirations. While some share personal experiences as Chinese artists living abroad, others choose a more general vision and show the commonality of living conditions of the Chinese community in Europe.
They give here their personal definition of Chinese identity beyond borders, far from clichés, and thus confirm their status as contemporary artists.
What do their origins represent? How is their identity translated in a country that is not that of their ancestors? Emphasis or erasure, so many questions that artists respond to through their creations.
The works and proceedings of these young artists bear witness to an extraordinary wealth through which they reclaim their cultural history.
30 artists and as many different visions. A diversity in the image of the current Chinese society, which already knows an international development.
Paintings, photographs, performances, videos, the exhibition offers a diversity of artistic supports, which is not unlike that of the cultural diversity evoked. The exhibition highlights the history of a country beyond its borders. The original scenography designed for this exhibition, in the manner of a contemporary cabinet of curiosities, will play on the accumulation of 30 works and objects, in a 600 square feet gallery.
