Some highlights from the collection and temporary exhibition at the great Today Art Museum in Beijing.
These characters are characteristic of Yue Minjun. He makes both sculptures and paintings of these smiling men. This installation is just outside the Today Art Gallery
Sculptures on the roof of Today Art Gallery
Zhang Yongxy - City Construction
This painting really points to the extreme development of Beijing. Maybe the only place left to dig and build highrise buildings are just in front of the Forbidden City
Wu Daxin - Highway Railing
Great idea! The typical fence dividing bicycles and cars in Beijing is a refrigerator! With the needed gas and compressor and everything, the installation not only divides, it also cools down.
Yue Minjun - Free and Leisure -10
the smiling men again
painting by Wang Yang
I was really taken by this painting. A great comment on art and art viewers.
Chen Wenling - How To Flee
An impressive installation from Chen Wenling. If you think this is great, have a look at his gigantic installation "Suspense" in the main exhibition hall (see next post on this blog).
