Voice of the Unseen Chinese Independent art 1979/today

Nappe 91 | Tese di San Cristoforo 92 93 94

Who are, where are they, and what are doing now the artists who, with the historical event of the 1979 exhibition on the "Wall of Democracy" of Xidan in Beijing, gave birth to the growingly influential stream of independent contemporary art in China? Voice of the Unseen is the most ambitious attempt to date to answer comprehensively to these questions, highlighting the history of Chinese art of the last thirty years through the work of the artists who created, from the Post-Avant-garde of the '80s and '90s, the movement of the non-official, or independent, Chinese art.
Body - Family - Village - Landscape - Ruins - Poverty - Magic - Memory - History. The nine themes are narrated through works, recent or expressly made, in various media: painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video, performance, accompanied by the largest reference library of Chinese culture ever created up to now as part of an art exhibition.
