亚洲艺术中心与A+ Contemporary 亚洲当代艺术空间荣幸地宣布,我们即将于2017年4月22日在亚洲艺术中心(北京)举行由康学儒策划的群展“绘画的尴尬”,参展艺术家包括贺勋、姜琤、李易纹、刘聪、刘夏、王兴杰、王云冲、余果、于瀛。展览将持续至2017年6月18日。


这不是一个风格展,也不是一个主题展,这是一个关于绘画问题的展。无疑,当下绘画正面临着前所未有的困境和尴尬。绘画的有些问题与生俱来,真诚的画家在焦虑和尴尬中依然坚持绘画,正是出于对绘画可能性的迷恋和推进。但有些问题则是随着社会的变迁而来,比如绘画与时代,绘画与社会,绘画与观众,绘画与其它艺术,以及绘画与画家之间的诸多关系和问题。绘画在当代语境中之所以尴尬,就在于我们总是从某一个角度,或者仅仅是从某种立场出发对绘画做出轻而易举判断。因此上,这次展览的初衷,也就是我们所要做的则是尽可能的试着从更全面的角度对绘画的问题做出探讨。


本展的九位艺术家从个体感知经验出发,记录并放大日常生活的细节、个体情感与记忆,将现实、梦境和隐喻融汇到当下的语境中;面对当代的焦虑与绘画的尴尬,这些艺术家并未沉溺于对 “当代性”的过度阐释,而是在创作实践中与时代保持着一种若即若离的关系——既体现出在场性又与时代潮流保持反思的距离,在策展人看来,这似乎正是突破绘画在当代所面临的困境的解决之道。


About Curator

Kang Xueru graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 2008. Kang Xueru currently lives and works in Beijing. He was former editor-in-chief of Art Time (Nov. 2011-Apr. 2015), editor-in-chief of Art Bank (Jun. 2014-Apr, 2015), associate editor of Art Time (Nov. 2008-Apr. 2010), edit of Art Map (Aug. 2007-Apr. 2008). He founded an experimental space in Beijing in 2013: We Wanted to Have a Space So There Will be a Space. He curated group exhibitions including: The Dilemmas of Painting (Asia Art Center, Beijing, 2017), The Cabinet of Wonder (Hei Qiao Art District, Beijing, 2015).


Asia Art Center and A+ Contemporary are pleased to announce the opening of group exhibition “The Dilemmas of Painting” curated by Kang Xueru on April 22th, 2017 at Asia Art Center Beijing. Participating artists include He Xun, Jiang Cheng, Li Yiwen, Liu Cong, Liu Xia, Wang Xingjie, Wang Yunchong, Yu Guo, Yu Ying. The exhibition is on view through June 18th, 2017.


This is not an exhibition of style, or of a particular theme, but an exhibition regarding the problems of painting. Painting is currently confronted with unprecedented dilemma and awkwardness. Some problems are intrinsic to painting; the most genuine painters remain steadfast solely for their belief and passion in the possibilities of painting. Other problems, however, surface as societies shift and change, such as the affairs and issues surrounding painting in relation to times, societies, audience, other art forms and painters themselves. The dilemmas of painting in a contemporary discourse are precisely due to the fact that we always criticize painting hastily from a fixed perspective or standpoint. The intention of this exhibition is thus to probe the problems of painting with the utmost thorough approach.


The nine participating artists begin from individual sensory experiences to record and expand on minute details, individual emotions and memories of the everyday, interweaving reality, dreams and metaphors into contemporary discourse; in the face of common anxiety and the dilemmas of painting, these artists are not concerned with drowning themselves in excessive interpretations of “contemporaneity”, but instead they engage in creative practices that continue to stay connected yet distant with their time – this exemplifies both a presence and a distance of critical reflection on trends of the era. In the eyes of the curator, this might in fact be the definite solution to the dilemmas of painting.
