Common Ground: UCCA 15th Anniversary Patrons Collection Exhibition

尤伦斯

Opening a season of celebration of UCCA’s fifteenth anniversary, this exhibition, drawn from the collections of UCCA patrons, includes nearly 100 works by 51 Chinese and international artists/groups. Grouped into sections on the fluidity of landscape, individual subjectivity, the instability of tradition, the power of the image, and the legacy of conceptualism, it surveys trends and offers perspectives on Chinese and global contemporary art.

 

This year marks the fifteenth anniversary of UCCA’s opening to the public, as well as the tenth anniversary of its individual giving program. A series of special programs has been planned in celebration of this milestone, beginning with the large-scale group show “Common Ground: UCCA 15th Anniversary Patrons Collection Exhibition,” on view at UCCA Beijing from April 16, 2022 to July 3, 2022. Curated by members of the UCCA curatorial team from the extensive collections of members of the UCCA Foundation Council, the exhibition showcases nearly 100 works by 51 Chinese and international artists/groups that reflect recent trends in contemporary art. Divided into five sections—“The Fluid Landscape,” “Epiphany of the Individual,” “Whose Tradition,” “Images and Forgetting,” and “Rethinking the Conceptual”—“Common Ground” seeks to situate these works within the historical contexts of their making and the current narratives of contemporary art, while opening up new lines of inquiry.
