If you happen to be in Beijing this fall, you’ll have the perfect opportunity to brush up on your cultural cred with the Ways of Seeing exhibition at CHAO Art Centre.
Taking its name from critic John Berger’s groundbreaking BBC television series from 1972, Ways of Seeing invites visitors to think deeper about what they see.
This year’s installment of the CHAO Art Centre’s Annual Art Exhibition gathers works by 17 acclaimed contemporary artists, both from within China and from around the world.
Ways of Seeing is a showcase of art that focuses on the human condition. After more than a year of preparation, this exhibition is presented from a variety of angles and puts into question some normative values in contemporary art, from monumentality, and recency to uniqueness.
Though all the pieces in the exhibition are unique stand-alone works, together, they showcase diverse approaches to originality and artistic vision to get viewers to question normative values in contemporary art like monumentality, innovation and uniqueness.
Among the works on display are Yoko Ono’s Grape Fruit; Banksy’s Di-Faced Tenner; Jenny Holzer’s Inflammatory Essays; and Allan Kaprow’s How to Make a Happening.
The Ways of Seeing exhibition will run from August 16,
