CAAM Likes: MATCHA at the Asian Art Museum

MATCHA celebrates Contemporary Chinese Art this April.

From April 19-21, see a special installation of never-before-seen artworks by some of China’s most celebrated and emerging artists.

PURE VIEWS “溪山清遠” takes its name from a work of art by Song Dynasty painter Xia Gui (1195-1224). Practices and techniques from this diverse group of living Chinese painters are exposed as the artists reflect and respond to their shared artistic heritage in an ever-changing global environment. Featured artists include Fang Lijun, Shang Yang, Ye Yongqing, Yue Minjun,Wang Guangyi, Zhang Xiaogang, and Zhou Chunya.

This installation will culminate in MATCHA on April 21, 5-9 pm, wherein four of these artists—Hong Lei, Wang Guangyi, Yue Minjun, and Zhou Chunya, along with critic Liu Chun and curator Lu Peng—will gather in a lively panel discussion about art in China today. You will also have one last chance to see Pure Views before the paintings are de-installed and shipped back to China. Catch the special exhibition Bali, stroll the galleries, go on a docent tour, mingle over cocktails and DJ-spun music.
