Motion Is Action – 35 Years of Chinese Media Art
Curator: Zhang Ga
Exhibition Date: 2023.09.22 – 2024.02.25
Gun Cheng participates in the group exhibition “Motion Is Action – 35 Years of Chinese Media Art” at BY ART MATTERS.
By examining the development and transformations in Chinese media art, the exhibition aims to explore the significant role of media expansion in the evolution of contemporary art, brought about by the information age. Through this exploration, the exhibition examines a series of thought-provoking issues, including scene reconstruction, the manipulation of time and space, perceptual misalignment, the creation of new artistic languages, and reflections on social and cultural contexts.
This exhibition brings together 79 representative works by 72 artists and groups from different generations. The works encompass a variety of media, including video, installations, performance art, interactive pieces, games, and digital art. The exhibition not only reflects on the early practices of video art but also delves into the cutting-edge exploration of emerging media and art forms such as artificial intelligence and space art.
