About

Location:  Great Hall

Yung Ho Chang: MATERIAL-ISM is a comprehensive retrospective of the groundbreaking, cross-disciplinary work of China's first international architect, Yung Ho Chang, and his practice FCJZ/Feichang Jianzhu. For this exhibition, Chang and FCJZ will transform UCCA’s Great Hall into an updated hutong neighborhood, containing six courtyard-like modules that each address a different aspect or focus of Yung Ho Chang's practice, including inhabitation, construction methods, urbanism, tradition, perception, and culture. The exhibition also includes several of FCJZ’s installations conceived and originally displayed in the contemporary art context, as well as two new films.

A systematic presentation of FCJZ's experiments in architecture, design, planning, and art, this exhibition explores the specific predicament of people, the buildings they inhabit, and the cities they constitute in this period of China's unprecedented growth. FCJZ offers witty, thoughtful, and universal design solutions that are at once distinctly Chinese, deeply humanist, and thoroughly cosmopolitan.
