UCCA is proud to present the public program series of “ON | OFF: China’s Young Artists in Concept and Practice”, consisting of “Self-Made, Self-Said” and “Ways and Means.” Chinese artists born after 1975 represent a striking diversity of practices and positions with methodologies distinct from any of the previous generations.
They competitively put their arguments forward, stepping up as a brave new driving force. In this series, titled “Ways and Means”, the curators invite key artists of “ON | OFF” to join them in discussions concerning their respective practice and methodology. Grouped by the topic, the artists will reveal creative microcosms through talks and forums.
