Neo-Perception: China's New Generation of Women Artists

China's New Generation of Women Artists



Shanghai – Pearl Lam Galleries is pleased to present Neo-Perception, a group exhibition that gathers the works of 24 young female Chinese contemporary artists. The exhibition, curated by Dr. Wang Chunchen, will show a prime selection of works from the artists’ oeuvres. Participating artists are Gao Shan, Gao Sihua, Geng Xue, He Xiaochun, Ju Ting, Li Na, Li Zi, Lin Ran, Lin Xin, Liu Qianyi, Liu Ren, Liu Yujie, Luo Wei, Mi Yuming, Pei Li, Wu Chao, Wu Mengshi, Wu Silin, Yu Feifei, Zhang Yaning, Zheng Qi, Zhou Hongbin, Zhou Qiaoyun, and Zhou Qingshan.

If “an artist is not a man who describes, but a man who feels”, as claimed by the poet and painter E.E. Cummings, then it can be understood that the intricacies unique to female identity and perception give rise to an immense field of art deserving of the utmost earnest attention. Neo-Perception embraces and confronts the imagery and language unique to art that reflects the diversity in women’s experiences and approaches to their identity, apart from exploring other themes on humanity. Art at any time period sees artists seeking their own voice as a fundamental pursuit; as a contemporary art exhibition, we witness the range of mediums that allow artists to express a variety of themes, including identity, sexuality, gender, mortality, relationships, and social dynamics.
