China Next Door

Xiao Ping. Untitled. 2007. Oil on canvas. 

Hello readers ^-^

Today I'm going to talk about the exposition I visited during my trip to Zaragoza. I didn't know it was there that days but when I went to visit "Palacio del Sástago" I could enjoy it. Moreover it was first time in Spain we could see the exposition. 

The exhibition, part of the collection of Esposito brothers, consist in about 40 contemporary art work of prominent Chinese artist. They use advanced digital technology to reflect the Chinese society. So, there are pictures which took a look at Chinese animation (I think is getting more popular around the world), but we can find some traditional cultural elements and simbology (Mao's image could not miss, of course).

It is organized in 5 sections: 

- Tradition versus modernity
- New social myths
- The woman and her social situation
- Stereotype and social taboo
- The new metropolis

And these are the photos I want to show you because are my favourites:

He Sen. Girl. Toy Smoking. 2003. Acrylic on canvas

Ciu Xiuwen. Angel No 1. 2006. Color printing

Cui Xiuwen Angel No 5. 2006. Digital printing

Ciu Xiuwen. One Day in 2004 No 2. 2004. Digital printing. 

Yes, in all the work of art I chose appear women! I hope you like it :)
