The Allure of Matter: Material Art From China

Since the 1980s, Chinese contemporary artists have cultivated intimate relationships with their materials, establishing a framework of interpretation revolving around materiality. Their media range from the commonplace to the unconventional, the natural to the synthetic, the elemental to the composite: from plastic, water, and wood, to hair, gunpowder, and Coca-Cola.The exhibition features approximately 48 monumental works that are complementary in form, material, and visual effect. Presented in partnership with Wrightwood 659. See our page for more information.
