Double Fly Art Center
Double Fly Art Center is a group of nine artists that was established in 2008, a year that saw the beginning of a new era for contemporary art in China. The financial bubble behind the Chinese art market had burst and focus moved away from the cynical-realism of the later 20th century to more nuanced and complex art of the 21st century. Reacting to the moment, as well as the tremendous social, cultural, and economic changes of the time Double Fly Art Center began to stage absurd, suggestive, and comical performances. Their work critically engaged art world systems, market forces, social cliques, and the transnational art ecology, while also skewering social and cultural norms within mainland China. Their colorful, loud, insane, and bombastic performances created a platform for discourse that still stands today.
