Starting in the early time with a series shows of the pioneering figures in China’s art scene such as Zhang XIaogang, Hai Ho, Song Dong, Yin Xiuzhen, Wang Luyan, Hong Hao, Liu Jianhua, and Xiao Yu, etc, Beijing Commune is one of the earliest galleries to show young talents from the emerging generations such as Hu Xiaoyuan, Liang Shuo, Liang Yuanwei, Ma Qiusha, Shang Yixin, Song Ta, Wang Guangle, Xie Molin, Yu JI, Zhou Yilun and Zhao Yao.
Beijing Commune regards understanding and promoting contemporary art in the global context as an important work agenda, and cooperation with international curators and artists has been launched in the gallery. In the recent couple of years, Beijing Commune has extended its work agenda to bringing in contemporary art outside of China, trying to create a new context for a vigorous conversation between China and the rest of the world via art. Cooperation with international curators and artists has been launched in the gallery. In 2018, the gallery held for the acclaimed British artist, Turner Prize winner Richard Deacon his first solo show in China.
Liang Shuo Scenery
21.03.19 - 04.05.19
For artist Liang Shuo, a “scenic spot” is both actual and conceptual. Centering on the idea of “landscape”, it intertwines with a series of topics such as time ( the past and the on-going), space, ideology and aesthetics, etc. In his new solo show to be open in March 2019, Liang Shuo will be elaborating his understanding about these concepts and topics with painting as his main medium, and the gallery space will be transformed into a setting specially created for the audience to view these paintings.
