2021年已接近尾声,在回顾过去一周年的同时,X美术馆也开始了对新阶段的展望。新的一年,X美术馆将继续以开放包容的态度,创新激进的策展方式将国际艺术家引入本土文化语境,并将一如既往地为大家呈现多元、别致的展览。


As 2021 is drawing to an end, while reflecting on the past year, X Museum also looks forward to the new phase. In the year of 2022, X Museum will continue to introduce international artists into the local cultural context with an open and inclusive attitude. Adopting innovative and radical curatorial approach, X Museum will be committed to presenting diverse exhibitions as always. 


未来的一年,X美术馆将关注不同的艺术领域,尝试突破艺术的界限,与其他学科产生碰撞。从探索亚洲时尚生产的“无尽的服装”(第二部分);到当代影像艺术的代表人物 – 米卡·罗滕伯格个展;从关注 “身体”、“自然”和“性别”的女性雕塑艺术家群展,再到备受瞩目的“大眼仔”形象,X美术馆将呈现多位艺术家的中国首个美术馆个展。X美术馆希望能够挖掘艺术更多的可能性,为当代艺术和文化生产开拓新的图景。


In the coming year, X Museum will nurture conversations among different art fields, trying to push the boundaries of art and fostering the interdisciplinary collaboration. The exhibition programme ranges from ‘The Endless Garment’ (Part II), a survey exhibition explores Asian fashion production; to the iconic video artist - Mika Rottenberg's solo exhibition; group exhibition of female sculpture artists, to Javier Calleja’s Big–Eyed characters, X Museum will present first solo exhibitions of several artists in China and hopes to explore more possibilities in contemporary art landscape and provide new opportunities for cultural production.

At the same time, X Museum will enhance its vision to support emerging artists globally. Trey Abdella and Antonio Obá will make their museum debuts in China. X Museum will also reveal the collections that are attributes of a female collector.

安东尼奥·奥巴的作品研究了巴西文化建构中所产生的影响和矛盾,并由此引发对民族身份的抵抗和反思。奥巴将巴西文化中的象征符号作为种族和政治身份的影射,通过雕塑、绘画、装置和表演等媒介回溯标志性的历史事件和宗教主题。奥巴的作品建立了一种时空与思想的互相联系,把我们所处的当下与被历史抹去的记忆结合起来。作为艺术家在亚洲机构的首次亮相,此次展览将展出包括油画、装置、纸本绘画在内的数十幅作品。展览将在奥巴的新系列作品的基础上,探究艺术家对殖民主义和奴隶制的关注与反思。


本次展览由X美术馆公共项目主管饶魁桢策划。


Antonio Obá investigates the influence and contradictions within the cultural construction of Brazil, giving rise to an act of resistance and reflection on the idea of national identity. Obá utilizes icons presented in Brazilian culture as allusions to racial and political identity, these iconic historical and sometimes religious subjects are explored within his sculpture, painting, installations, and performance. With his experience and contemporary conceptions of faith, Obá’s research establishes an interconnection of thoughts that combines our current times with the old times erased by history. 


As the artist's debut show in an Asian institution, the exhibition will feature works that Obá has created for the past few years, as well as his new series of works, including oil paintings, installation and drawings on paper. The exhibition aims to investigate the artist's reflections and enquiries into colonialism and slavery. 


The exhibition is curated by Cyril Kuizhen Rao, Head of Public Programme at X Museum.

“无尽的服装”以中国南海这一地理概念为起点,研究该地域的时尚生产。此展览项目分为两部分贯穿整个2021年,第一部分于2021年春季在 X 美术馆开幕展出,在临近的12月,X 美术馆将呈现“无尽的服装”第二部分。

  

此次展览将延续第一部分的研究,汇集来自大中华地区及十个东南亚国家的20多位设计师及艺术家的作品。展览越过“时尚”的主流范畴,转而专注边缘化的生产和创作空间。以著作权、真实性、劳动力、文化遗产和身份为主要线索,讨论全球时尚生产体系中所衍生出的文化叙事。


该研究项目将贯穿整个2021年,并最终在12月完成总结性展览和一个出版物。该出版物将与时尚评论杂志《Viscose》合作出版,于2022年春季在全球发行。


“无尽的服装”展览项目由X美术馆首席策展人吴冬雪,及特邀独立策展人耶培·乌尔维共同策划。


Taking South China Sea as its starting point, ‘The Endless Garment’ examines the fashion production in this region. The exhibition project consists of two parts: the first part was opened at X Museum in spring time in 2021. In this coming December, X Museum will present the second part of ‘The Endless Garment’. 


The exhibition will continue the research of the first part, bringing together the works of more than 20 designers and artists from the Greater China region and Southeast Asian countries. Tackling themes such as authorship, authenticity, labor, heritage, and identity, the exhibition skips fashion’s mainstream purview to instead focus on its more marginal spaces of production. By presenting diaspora fashion practices from around the world alongside fashion businesses from the region, the project sets out to complicate ‘Asia’ as a cultural, geographical, and economic category, while deepening the stories, questions, and sensibilities behind it.


The project will continue throughout 2021 and culminate in a publication and a conclusive exhibition. Published in collaboration with the journal for fashion criticism Viscose, the publication will be distributed worldwide in Spring 2022.


‘The Endless Garment’ is curated by X Museum Chief Curator Poppy Dongxue Wu and guest curator Jeppe Ugelvig.

特睿·阿布德拉以明艳的色彩,卡通式的视觉叙事,和超现实主义的创作手法引发观者对其作品的共鸣。

  

阿布德拉沉浸于当代文化中,他大尺幅的画作里集合了广泛多样的引用,从巴洛克现实主义,到经典的卡通语言,再到我们的数字文化。丙烯颜料是他作品的基础,有时也会穿插一些实用材料如胶水、玻璃和亮片,将画布转化为一个近乎三维的作品。在阿布德拉的绘画作品里现实和虚构之间的界限逐渐消亡,反映了因为无处不在的社交媒体,今天的年轻人正在经历一个巨大的视觉和信息冲击。此次展览是特睿·阿布德拉在中国的首次个展,届时将呈现艺术家为本次展览特别创作的新作品。

  

本次展览由 X 美术馆创始人兼馆长黄勖夫策划。


In Trey Abdella's works, the bright color, cartoonish visual narrative, and surrealist compositions can easily increase audiences’ empathy with them. 


Immersing himself in contemporary culture, Abdella assembles a wide and diverse references in his large scale paintings, from Baroque realism, to classic cartoon language, to our digital culture. Acrylic paint is the basis of all his works, sometimes interspersed with actual materials such as glue, glass and sequins, transforming the canvas into an almost three-dimensional work. The blurring of the line between reality and fiction in Abdella's paintings reflects the enormous visual and informational impact that today's youth are experiencing due to the ubiquity of social media. As the artist’s first solo exhibition in China, the show will feature his new paintings that created specifically for this exhibition. 


The exhibition is curated by Michael Xufu Huang, founder and director of X Museum.

此次群展,X 美术馆将目光聚焦到女性雕塑艺术家的实践上,将展出来自国内外四位女性艺术家的作品。部分艺术家会根据本次展览的空间和语境进行全新的创作呈现。

  

展览将以“反复无常的身体(volatile bodies)”为主题,通过雕塑和装置作品讨论“身体”是如何被视为生物、物质和个人叙事的融合。展览从跨学科的角度出发,以澳大利亚哲学家伊丽莎白·格罗兹(Elizabeth Grosz)的女性主义理论为基础,讨论现代生态学、女性主义和生物学的观点,反思女性情感和人体之间关系。展览旨在揭示基于个人主义和不断变化的社会的脆弱性,以及人、性别、自然和身体之间的固有联系。

  

本次展览由 X 美术馆公共项目主管饶魁桢策划。


For this group exhibition, X Museum focuses on the practice of female artists from China and abroad. Some of them will create new works in accordance with the space and discourse of this exhibition.

 

Rooted in the theme of ‘volatile bodies’, the exhibition will discuss, through sculpture and installation, how the ‘body’ can be seen as a place of encounters where biology, materials, and personal narratives take place and convene. Based on the feminist theories of the Australian philosopher Elizabeth Grosz, the exhibition takes on an interdisciplinary approach, discussing modern ecological, feminist and biological perspectives and reflecting on the relationship between female sensibilities and the human body. The exhibition aims to reveal the fragility of a society based on individualism and constant change, and the inherent connections between humankind, gender, nature and the body. 

 

The exhibition is curated by Cyril Kuizhen Rao, Head of Public Programme at the X Museum.

阿根廷-以色列艺术家米卡·罗滕伯格是当今影像艺术的代表性人物。罗滕伯格的影像作品运用电影和雕塑的传统手法,关注世界各地特定的生产和商业系统,比如中国的珍珠工厂,加利西哥的边境小镇等。在她的超现实视频作品和动态装置中,米卡·罗滕伯格突出了存在于生产机制中的女性身体。经过视频编辑,罗滕伯格将看似不相干的地方和事物联系起来,创造出精心设计的、颠覆性的视觉叙事。同时,她多维度的影像往往伴随着独立的雕塑作品,用寓言故事将事实和虚构交织在一起,强调了我们当代社会的内在美和荒谬性。

 

本次展览是米卡·罗滕伯格自疫情开始创作的全新影像作品 《Remote》 在中国的首映。

  

本次展览由 X 美术馆首席策展人吴冬雪策划。


Argentine–Israeli artist Mika Rottenberg is an iconic figure in contemporary video art scene. Adopting both cinematic and sculptural approaches, she seeks out locations around the world where specific systems of production and commerce are in place, such as a pearl factory in China, and a Calexico border town. In her surreal video works and kinetic installations, Mika Rottenberg highlights the female body found in the production mechanisms. Through the editing process, and with footage from sets built in her studio, Rottenberg connects seemingly disparate places and things to create elaborate and subversive visual narratives. By weaving fact and fiction together, she highlights the inherent beauty and absurdity of our contemporary existence.


This exhibition will be the premiere of the artist's new work ‘Remote’ in China. Rottenberg took up the project when lockdown begins. It’s the artist’s first full-length feature.


The exhibition is curated by X Museum Chief Curator, Poppy Dongxue Wu.

西班牙艺术家哈维尔·卡勒加所创作的人物形象以其夸张的头部造型,明亮无辜的眼神,率真幽默的情感受到广泛关注与好评。

  

卡勒加的大眼男孩形象反映了艺术家自己的感受和经历,这些人物从素描发展到绘画,再到雕塑,几乎都是描绘处于青少年和青春过渡时期的男孩。这些男孩有着超大的水汪汪的眼睛和淡红色脸颊,他们像是刚刚克服了困难的小英雄,哭泣之后即将再次微笑。

  

在过去的几年里,哈维尔·卡勒加的大眼男孩在欧洲和亚洲其他地区逐渐变得炙手可热,此次 X 美术馆将这个纯真无邪的男孩带入展厅,邀请大家一同走进他丰富的内心世界。


The glass-eyed figures created by Spanish artist Javier Calleja have received widespread acclaim for their exaggerated head shapes, bright and innocent eyes, as well as their frank and humorous emotions.


Calleja's images of wide-eyed boys reflect the artist's own feelings and experiences. The figures evolve from sketches to paintings and sculptures, depicting boys in a transitional period of adolescence and youth. With their oversized watery eyes and muted red cheeks, these boys look like little heroes who have just overcome adversity and are about to smile again after crying.


Over the past few years, the character has been a hit in Europe and Asia. In the year of 2022, X Museum will bring this innocent boy into the museum space and invite you to enter into his inner world.
