Exhibitions
  • 2017.9.15 - 2017.12.17

    Curators: Boliang Shen and Zhanglun Dai

    Artists: Chen Zhou, Liu Shiyuan, Nabuqi, Li Ran

    This exhibition grows from modern Chinese writer Ba Jin’s eponymous 1947 novel, which recounts the collapse of a family of intellectuals owing to domestic conflict against a background of national crisis. The curators invited the four artists, after reading the story, to play the roles of its four protagonists through their own artistic creation. Throughout the period of creation, the artists interacted with and responded to each other from their respective roles, forming a sort of creative collective built on the foundation of the novel. The final presentation of the exhibition is the artists’ response to their fictional personae as well as their current lived reality. The overlapping and mixing of these responses, in turn, structures a new space, a new text.

  • 2017.12.16 - 2017.12.17

    In a workshop, forum and performance series, UCCA invites artists, directors, and academics to explore the relationship between performance art and theater, traditionally viewed as two separate art forms. With the arrival of postmodernism, however, the boundaries between the two become blurred: contemporary performance art incorporates more and more narrative elements into itself, and contemporary theater places increasing emphasis on visuality and the body. Guest speakers will be asked to weigh in on how these two artistic forms should be redefined, whether a synthesis can be found in China, and what implications this synthesis might have on artists and performers.

     

    For the first part of the series, Chinese-German theater director Cao Kefei and performance artist Li Xinmo will explore the relationship between theater, performance, curation by simultaneously moderating, and fluidly moving between, two workshops at UCCA. In each workshop, performance artists, dancers, and musicians will interpret several key words using their bodies, vision, and hearing, testing the boundaries of language and meaning. Following this will be a performance consisting of several separate yet interactive pieces taking place at various spaces in the Center.

     

    Ticketing:

    *Workshops are closed to the public; December 17 performance and forum are open to the public

    自2017年6月起,UCCA每逢双月都会与CNEX联合推出CNEX MOVIES放映活动:6月UCCA举办了柏林电影节获奖影片《笨鸟》的中国首映;8月UCCA放映张钊维导演的《冲天》,10月则放映了曾获得2005年罗马国际纪录片节最佳纪录片的意大利电影《马戏团的后台人生》。12月我们将放映《记者之死》和《苦楚我名》,前者探讨了记者在新闻调查中面临的危险及这种危险的成因;后者则关注乌干达的同志团体如何捍卫自身的权益。《苦楚我名》曾在2012年获得德国柏林影展泰迪熊奖。

     

    作为艺术电影放映的平台,UCCA希望促进世界范围内的艺术电影交流。那些优秀的艺术电影,如万玛才旦的《塔洛》和毕赣的《路边野餐》等都曾在UCCA的银幕上做过首映。而CNEX作为推广全球范围内华人纪实文艺片的独立机构,自2015年开始与UCCA建立良好的合作关系,于每年四月举办CNEX影展。

    In the early ’80s group of us who had artistic ambitions left behind steady work and comfortable homes to go and live in Beijing. I knew that, sooner or later, our period of living as bohemians might end, so I should get to work and record some of it with a camera. That was my motivation in making this film. Friends helped out with shooting the movie, and I was able to borrow equipment from various people. After Zhang Ci, friends like Zhang Lida, Gao Bo, Mou Sen and Zhang Xiaping all found a place in the movie.

    At the beginning of 1990 I was in my hometown Kunming at a friend’s editing room doing final editing work, and only then I came up with the name Bumming in Beijing. The people in this film led lives similar to mine, filled with hope and disappointment, misery and happiness, innocence and savagery. After the movie was finished, the eighties came to an end as well. For some young people in China, it meant the end of an era and a certain romantic dream, and the approach of a new, utterly different decade.

     

    Written by Wu Wenguang in January 1991

In December, UCCA will be screening Chinese director Wu Wenguang’s Bumming in Beijing, selected for the Berlin International Film Festival, Hawaii International Film Festival and so on. UCCA will also be inviting the film’s cinematographer to give a talk at the Center.
