Jeffrey Shaw and Hu Jieming Twofold Solo Exhibition

Jeffrey Shaw and Hu Jieming twofold solo exhibition focuses on these two artists who have both developed individual approaches to new media art, and contributed each in their own way to the practice and context of this new art form as we experience it today. Jeffrey Shaw is a leading figure in new media art and has been active since its emergence from the performance, expanded cinema, and installation paradigms of the 1960s, to its present day technology-informed and virtualized forms. Set out as a twofold solo exhibition, the Chronus Art Center simultaneously presents a new art piece by Hu Jieming: Tai Chi with Prelude. This has been created not only as a response to the influence of Hu's old master, but also to Hu's own artistic achievements over the past years. Constantly concerned with subjects such as time, human history, and cultural memory, Hu intended to illuminate the boundaries between the "passing-by" and "going-on" and by doing so he set viewers free from the chronological way of seeing historical events, onto a more accidental reconstruction.

Date: Until November 28, 11 am to 6 pm (closed Mondays)

Venue: Chronus Art Center


Address: Bldg 18, 50 Moganshan Road 莫干山路50号18号楼

Admission: Free
