Liu Xiaodong: Shaanbei

New York, 4 May – 10 June 2023

Liu Xiaodong: Shaanbei artwork

Liu Xiaodong presents an exhibition of new works from his Shaanbei series, one of the artist’s most ambitious and personally significant projects to date. As a student at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, Liu took regular trips to the expansive Shaanbei region of China, keeping diaries and sketches of the mountainous area surrounding the city of Yan’an and the rural lands far outside the city. Liu’s return to the region 30 years later signaled a revisitation to the foundations of his practice as a painter of modern life, and allowed him to examine a changing civic landscape.
