Chinese Art in Transformation
Opened September 25, 2020
Minsheng Art Museum, Beijing
Duration: Chinese Art in Transformation attempts to show how every moment that stretches is an absorption of the past, and the endless possibilities of the future are based on the past and the present. The exhibition presents painting, sculpture, installation, video, animation, and more from the 1970s to the present. Work by Hao Liang, Jia Aili, and Zeng Fanzhi is included.

Titled after a popular disco song from the mid-’70s, More, More, More features new commissions and existing artwork by twenty-eight international artists and groups. Like the song, the exhibition embraces an attitude of sensorial play, extra-linguistic excess, and mutable meaning. In addition to traditional media, it features works that open the field of artistic experience to a diversity of phenomena by incorporating mediums such as perfume, music, bacteria, and light frequencies. Work by Hao Liang is included.
