For the fifth Focus edition, Philip TinariDirector of The Ullens Center for Contemporary ArtBeijing, will curate Armory Focus: China, shining new light on the country’s contemporary cultural practice. In recognition of the dynamism of the Chinese art scene, The Armory Show will present an exciting selection of 17 galleries, many of whom will be exhibiting outside of Asia for the first time, including Beijing Commune (Beijing) showing Zhao Yao; a collaborative presentation of Zhang Ding by Galerie Krinzinger (Vienna) and ShanghART (Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore); He Xiangyu at White Space (Beijing); Chambers Fine Art (Beijing, New York) presenting Zhao Zhao;Chen ShaoxiongWang Luyan, and Zhao Liang at Pékin Fine Arts (Beijing, Hong Kong); Madein(Shanghai) showing Lu Pingyuan; and Nadim Abbas at Gallery EXIT (Hong Kong).
Tinari remarks: “This section will showcase both the dynamism of a new generation of Chinese artists and the vigor of the country’s homegrown gallery scene. Armory Focus: China marks the most comprehensive presentation of current art from China to be mounted in New York since the early 2000s.”
A full list of Armory Focus: China projects and programming will be available in the new year.
Artist Commission
In honor of Armory Focus: China, Xu Zhen has been chosen as the 2014 Commissioned Artist and will lend the fair his graphic identity through printed ephemera and a specially commissioned limited edition. Xu Zhen, a “chameleon of concept,” has built an extensive body of work that includes video, installation, performance, and photography. From theatrical merry pranks to quieter works playing on human sensitivity, Xu Zhen has developed a repertoire confronting social-political taboos within the context of contemporary China and beyond.
