My Living Room | Red Gate Gallery 25th Anniversary Exhibition
My Living Room celebrates Red Gate Gallery's 25th anniversary by drawing from works collected by its founder, Brian Wallace, over his last 30 years in Beijing.
Between the red columns of the Dongbianmen Watchtower Wallace and guest curators will 're-create' his apartment's living room with contemporary art from his mostly Chinese collection, but also with work by artists from around the world, many of whom have been on Red Gate's Artist-in-Residence program. Up to twelve rooms will be filled with sculpture, photography, installation, light and moving images, painting and printmaking. Notions such as language, mobility, nationality, aspiration, identity and apprehension will be explored through the multifarious styles in the collection.
红门画廊二十五周年庆 – “朗舍” 将为您展现创始人布朗 · 华莱士先生 (Mr. Brian Wallace) 在华三十年期间的个人现代艺术收藏。在东便门角楼的两扇红色大门后，主策展人和特邀策展嘉宾们将共同为您重现时代变迁中，布朗家舍内一代又一代艺术家们的杰出作品。这些形式多样的艺术品主要来自中国，当然也包括世界其他国家地区艺术家的作品，其中更有参与了“红门驻地计划”的历任海外艺术家们。展览现场将呈现出12间别具风格的房间，室内作品涉及了雕塑，摄影，装置，灯光与动态图，油画以及版画等，凸显了艺术家们对于语言，积极向上，民族精神，生活激情，自我认知，忧患意识等领悟。
Works by some of the stars of contemporary Chinese art such as Su Xinping, Wang Yuping, Liu Qinghe, Sheng Qi, Shen Ling, Gonkar Gyatso, Zhang Dali, Qi Zhilong and over 60 other artists will help the audience reflect on the tremendous changes which Wallace has witnessed over the past three decades. Other works by younger, lesser known artists will describe the emergence of a second generation, bringing a more global attitude to contemporary China. Importantly there are also many works by international artists who have been influenced by their interactions with China.
