    “i” 顾长卫当代艺术展

    "I" Gu Changwei Contemporary Art Exhibition

    上海当代艺术馆非常荣幸地于201412月中旬举办顾长卫当代艺术展。

     

    电影艺术家顾长卫早年习画。78年入北京电影学院摄影系,进入电影行业。有关他在当代艺术领域的实践与探索却从未被外界知晓。此次“ i ”顾长卫当代艺术展,就是他积淀已久的一次呈现。

     

    展览中艺术家的表现方式包含视频、平面影像及装置作品。每件作品都与我们日常的生活息息相关,但又以超乎寻常的美艳姿态重现。面对这些作品,我们能够正、反观自己的内心,又能延伸出各异的解答,其背后也隐藏了艺术家对于当代社会价值的解读,及对当下物质存在的思考。

     

    此次个人展览,并非是艺术家对于过往的总结和延续,而是一个独具视角且充满冷静思考和饱满激情表述的新开始。届时,我们将看到一位熟悉的老朋友,向人们开启他奇妙的“ i ”的新世界。

     

    顾长卫引用杜尚的话解释了他艺术创作的动机:“艺术不在于艺术本身,而在于我们给它带来的关注。(Art is not about itself but the attention we bring to it.

     

     

    本次展览的策展人孔长安先生1989年参与策划和组织了中国首届当代艺术展,是九十年代初在国际著名艺术杂志Flash Art撰文推介中国当代艺术的重要批评家,也是首位威尼斯双年展的中国策展人(1993年第45届威尼斯双年展开放展)。近些年来孔长安先生在美国主要从事影像艺术实践和研究。

     

    上海MoCA年底举办的“ i ”顾长卫当代艺术展是一个著名电影导演和资深策展人跨界合作、以影像艺术为媒介进行深入对话交流的当代艺术展示活动,将演绎出别开生面的艺术界年终大戏。

His practice and exploration in the field of contemporary art have never been known by the outside world. The "i" Gu Chang Wei Contemporary Art Exhibition, is his long-awaited presentation.
     
    The performance of artists in the exhibition includes video, graphic images and installation works. Each piece is closely related to our daily life, but it is reproduced in extraordinary beauty. In the face of these works, we can look back and forth at our own heart and in different ways, revealing the artist's interpretation of the contemporary social values and the thinking of the present material existence.
     
    This solo exhibition is not the artist's summary and continuation of the past, but a new beginning with a unique perspective and full of calm thinking and passionate expressions. At that time, we will see a familiar old friend who opens up his wonderful "i" new world to people.


    Gu Chang-sheng quoted Du Shang's words as explaining his motive for artistic creation: "Art is not about itself but the attention we bring to it." Art is not about art itself, but about it.
