Wang Xin's new installation work will be exhibited at 798 Art Center from 22 - 31 May 2020 as part of the Up & Coming Sector in the fourth edition of Gallery Weekend Beijing.
"Historically, the relationship between art and spirituality is an intimate one. The participating artists will communicate across histories and geographies: for instance, some of the featured work will resemble the process of creating a world, some will scrutinize the enchanting and magical capability of digital images, and some will fictionalize or re-invent certain traditions or belief systems. The exhibition extends the long-standing discussion of the artist’s role as mediator or as prophet; more importantly, it re-examines the “priestly function” of an artist to “mobilize structures of beauty and meaning” and explores possible new bonds between us humans and our immediate surroundings, as well as with the natural and super natural worlds."
