PRESS RELEASE — ENGLISH
Galerie Urs Meile is pleased to announce the opening of Wang Xingwei’s solo exhibition entitled Honor and Disgrace. It will be the artist’s first exhibition since his large 2013 retrospective at Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) in Beijing. The exhibition will open on September 10th, 2016 in the new Platform China space in Beijing’s 798 art district. Galerie Urs Meile would also like to thank Platform China for the generous support they have provided for this exhibition.
The selection of works, manner of installation, and exhibition catalogue have all been chosen with careful deliberation from the artist himself. It is a courageous expression and large release of energy encapsulating the artist’s career since moving to Beijing in 2008.
The artist thinks that there is no need to provide the audience with any extra information from himself, as simply facing the works is the best way to experience this exhibition.
We look forward to seeing you at the opening on September 10th!
