Tang Contemporary Art is proud to announce the opening of “Xu Xiaoguo: Recent Work,” a solo exhibition for Xu Xiaoguo in the gallery’s second Beijing space, on September 7, 2019.Curated by Cui Cancan, the show will feature more than twenty works that Xu has created since 2017.
This is the third major exhibition that the artist has held with Tang Contemporary Art,following his eponymous solo show “Xu Xiaoguo” at the gallery’s first Beijing space in December 2015 and “Between the Green: Xu Xiaoguo” at the Hong Kong space in August 2016.
The exhibition fully and clearly presents Xu's different creative stages and exploratory directions, as well as the secret connections between different series. From his initial spatial magic, to structural explorations divorced from reality, to his recent work full of detail and wit, Xu Xiaoguo's work reflects multiple intersections and perceptions in painting and spirit.
