About the Exhibition
WeChat is a mobile messaging app, developed in China, with more than 600 million users worldwide. Combining the functions of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, WeChat has become the primary means of communication for members of China’s younger generation, now living and working throughout the world. The exhibition We Chat: Dialogue in Contemporary Chinese Art explores how these artists who were born after China’s Cultural Revolution are challenging the traditional notions of Chinese identity. Featured are works by CHEN Wei, GUO Xi, JIN Shan, Pixy Yijun LIAO, LIU Chuang, LU Yang, MA Qiusha, SHI Zhiying, SUN Xun, and Bo WANG.
