Exhibition time: from May 18 to Nov 19, 2023
Unsounded - Retrospective of 30 Years’Sound Creation in China’s Contemporary Art, through a six-month exhibition, gives a retrospective look at the practice of art creation in Chinese contemporary art with sound as the main medium in the past 30 years.
The exhibition will make a breakthrough in the chronological and comprehensive perspectives of traditional retrospectives. It adopts a speculative anthropological standpoint instead to set sail in the river of history, sort out the ripples of time, and make works from different historical times re-present in a combined way. Each group of works is an island, formed in line with a unique sound concept, making a special logical relationship.
In the exhibition hall, the works will be replaced on a regular basis. The number of participating artists increases, as the exhibition goes on, so much so that a picture of a nearly complete archipelago ecology of sound creation in Chinese contemporary art will be presented at last.
