28 Chinese

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The result of more than a decade’s worth of exploration, research and collecting, this new exhibition—organized by the extraordinary Rubell Collection in Miami—presents 48 artworks from 28 contemporary Chinese artists.

The impressive roster includes early innovators and internationally acclaimed stars—Ai Weiwei, Zhang Huan and Huang Yong Ping, among them—as well as a new generation of game changers—like Liu Wei and Xu Zhen. Works will be shown throughout the museum to further highlight the individual approaches of these unique artists. North Court will be transformed by Zhu Jinshi’s colossal Boat. You’re invited to walk through this stunning, 40-foot installation and examine its delicate construction—row upon row of stacked paper overlapping bamboo rods suspended from the ceiling with cotton thread. Other works will appear in the museum’s Chinese collection galleries on the second and third floors, linking them to their cultural and thematic lineage.

Featuring painting, installation, photography and new media (including a robust selection of video), 28 Chinese brings together a multiplicity of practices and perspectives. While the exhibition offers only a sample of the dynamic contemporary art scene in China, it represents some of the most notable Chinese artists working today.
