Curated by Cui Cancan

Beijing 1st Space
Tang Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the opening of Qin Ga, a solo exhibition for Qin Ga in the gallery's first Beijing space, on July 13, 2019. Curated by Cui Cancan, the exhibition will be Qin Ga's most important solo presentation in nearly ten years. The exhibition will showcase three important works: Where Are You Going, Belief, and Enclosure Project. Qin Ga's work begins with sculpture, but also incorporates videos, performances, photographs, social surveys, and institutions. The combination of several mediums presents the artist's thoughts about the nomadic cultural philosophy and the world it has constructed, as well as the concepts of sovereignty and boundaries in modern society.
Qin Ga is an artist and the founder of Zao Space. He gained his bachelor's and master's degree in sculpture from the Central Academy of Fine Arts and is currently teaching at the Central Academy of Fine Arts. Since the late 1990s, his works have always been concerned with reality and coherence. His anti-aesthetic attitude enabled him to develop an ultra-daily personal preference and dependence on reality. His body carries the public memories and personal feeling to create a live work that breaks the viewer’s expectations and the line between the works to make the sculpture a turbulent one. At the meantime, he tries to blend the cognitive spirit of the nomadic culture with the actual experience and express the delusions of reality. In 2012, he established “Zao Space”, selecting social spaces in a nomadic manner, allowing art to take place in the social space, and in the face of very specific realities, initiated a number of artistic action projects. Major public collections include the Queensland Art Museum in Australia, the Czech National Gallery, the UBS Collections, the M+ Museum in Hong Kong, and the Central Academy of Fine Arts.
