Tang Yongxiang lives and works in Beijing. “Hei Qiao” refers to the art district where the artist worked in his early days in Beijing. The exhibition is Tang Yongxiang’s first solo exhibition in Shanghai. The different context loosens the signified. “Hei Qiao” may no longer be a well-known art district, and its signified will be extended. Tang is used to removing the restrictions that naming places on his works, and is always happy to see more kinds of reading paths to his works.
