The large group exhibition “Digging a Hole in China”, curated by OCAT Shenzhen Artistic Director Venus Lau, presents artworks within the Chinese contemporary art context connected to the land, contrasting them with the “traditional” definition of land art in the West as it probes the possibility of “land” as a cultural and administrative concept in artistic practice.
In “Summer Triangle”, the three participating artists bring their widely different cultural backgrounds to bear on urban imagery and sensory perception to engage in a multisensory exploration of cultural exchange that transcends conventional geopolitical concepts.
OCAT Shenzhen presents a solo exhibition of Chinese artist Jiang Zhi, revealing the openness and legibility of the artist’s practice through his diverse conceptual expressions and subversions of self-awareness.
This will be the first mainland China solo exhibition for New Zealand artist Simon Denny, who represented his country at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015). OCAT Shenzhen invites the artist to explore the material forms of technology and information against the backdrop of Shenzhen’s technological development and imagination for the future.
