Went back to the Ullens Center this weekend to take a closer look not just at the ’85 New Wave exhibition, but also at the facility itself. Both are quite impressive. The exhibition gave me the opportunity to encounter several movements of modern Chinese art that I had yet to experience first hand – films of key Xiamen Dada performances for example. There are also some more well-known works on display like Xu Bing’s Book From the Sky.
The facility itself promises much with lectures, screenings and book exhibitions planned for the coming year. A second storey research room/library looks to be a gathering place for those seeking a comfortable, quite spot with wifi to work on meeting their next deadline. Oh and I was happy to see that By Hand made it into the book collection!
