LASALLE-SIA presents Zooming Into Focus


Contemporary Chinese Photography and Video reflecting the transformation of Chinese Culture in new exhibition at LASALLE-SIA

An international travelling exhibition of new art from the Haudenschild Collection

12 Aug - 11 Sep 2005

Free Admission

Organised by LASALLE-SIA¡¯s Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, Zooming into Focus: Contemporary Chinese Photography and Video from the Haudenschild Collection will feature some of the most prominent contemporary Chinese artists of today.
The exhibition will highlight the remarkable photography and videography work currently being created in China, a country that is undergoing tremendous development and growth.
This swift transformation of Chinese culture is reflected in the work of each of the nine participating artists, who comment on contemporary Chinese urban life with intelligence, wit, foreboding and nostalgia.
Contemporary art in China reflects the country's rising influence as an economic, political and cultural force in the international arena.
Chinese artists, especially those working in photography and video, are gaining international recognition for their powerful works that address a rapidly changing society that is influenced by Western ideals and art practice, yet remains distinctly Chinese in its content and aesthetic.
The artists Chen Shaoxiong, Weng Fen, Xiang Liqing, Xu Zhen, Yang Zhenzhong, Yang Fudong, Yu Youhan, Zhang Peili and Zheng Guogu are not only well established in the Chinese art scene but have also received international recognition and acclaim through inclusions in major exhibitions including the Venice Biennale (Italy), Shanghai Biennale (China), Documenta (Germany), Yokohama Triennale (Japan) and at museums including the Museum of Modern Art (New York) and the Mori Art Museum (Tokyo).
This exhibition will come to Earl Lu Gallery through the generous loan from the Haudenschild Collection.
Noted American art collectors Eloisa and Chris Haudenschild have created one of the most important collections of contemporary Chinese art in the world. Focusing on the work of experimental artists from Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai, the collection - and the exhibition - will make groundbreaking contributions to the field of international contemporary art. The exhibition has travelled to the US, Mexico and China.
As an educational institution, LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts is at the forefront of the exhibition of, and research in, contemporary art. Its Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore is devoted to the exhibition and research of international and Asian contemporary art.
Through its exhibition programme at its facility, Earl Lu Gallery, as well as its extensive programme of publications, conference and research activities, Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore aims to further the discourses of contemporary art in Asia.
