[Press Release]

Participating artists: Ding Yi, Jia Aili, Liu Jianhua, Liu Wei, Liu Xiaodong, Mao Yan, Xu Zhen, Yang Fudong, Yan Pei-Ming, Zeng Fanzhi, Zhang Enli, Zhang Xiaogang

“Studio” brings together twelve of China’s most prominent contemporary artists: Ding Yi, Jia Aili, Liu Jianhua, Liu Wei, Liu Xiaodong, Mao Yan, Xu Zhen, Yang Fudong, Yan Pei-Ming, Zeng Fanzhi, Zhang Enli, & Zhang Xiaogang. By exploring their studios and working conditions through each artist’s own lens, the source of their creative output is put on display, and the unique personalities of these artists and their artworks become tangible.

“Every year, I spend a lot of time visiting artists’ studios. Studios are wonderful places to visit – you get an insight into the way an artist works, the conditions they work in, and you can see their newest pieces. It’s somewhere you can really get a comprehensive understanding of an artist. Artists are a perceptive, eclectic group, and through their studios you get to see the various characteristics of different artists: some appear cluttered and homely, others clean and sterile; some have books strewn about, others bottles; in some, the sound of music drifts through the air… Art should be about more than just aesthetic images or objects. From their studio, we get a glimpse into an artist’s pursuits and creativity; we can awaken our awareness and understanding of their world. We believe that this is an extraordinary and unusual exhibition, one that will be written into art history. ” - Qiao Zhibing (Collector, Exhibition Organizer)

This exhibition is supported by UBS AG, Phillips and West Bund Group.

Taking the West Bund Cultural Corridor and West Bund Media Harbor as the core projects, the area is aiming to create a distinguished and exciting waterfront urban district by bringing together leaders in culture, art, media, fashion design and innovative financial services from across the globe.

The West Bund has already attracted the Long Museum (West Bund), Yuz Museum, Shanghai Center of Photography, ShanghART Gallery, and other technical and financial projects, such as the Shanghai Dreamworks Center, Tencent, Xiang Mango, Shenyin Wanguo Securities and China Fortune Securities.
