Caochangdi Photospring ; Arles in Beijing
We are pleased to announce the launch of the first annual Caochangdi PhotoSpring on April 17th, 2010. The Caochangdi PhotoSpring is working in a three-year partnership with "Les Rencontres d'Arles" Photography Festival. This will be the very first time that Arles' programs will be shown outside of France.
For the past forty years, "Les Rencontres d'Arles" has been the meeting point of photography artists, professionals, and amateurs alike, who come to the southern French city to discover the new talents of photography and rediscover its celebrated masters.
The Caochangdi art district was born in northeastern Beijing in 2000 and has since flourished into a vibrant artistic hub with numerous galleries, art institutions, and artists' studios. The aim of the Caochangdi PhotoSpring is to build a plat...
Exhibition : « Temporary Boundary » is presented at the Galerie Paris-BeijingTemporary Boundary is a curatorial project presented in two parts, revealing a selection of contemporary Chinese photographs and artist's videos that have been censured in their own country. Galerie Paris-Beijing is very proud to host the curator of CIFA-China Independent Film Archive for the video part of the exhibition.
Among the photographic works, the selection of which was conceived by Romain Degoul, the gallery’s founder, we find works by the Gao Brothers: since the 1980s, the two brothers have been practicing politi- cal satire through their pieces, which has brought them under close surveillance. Two guards are regularly posted at the entrance of their studio.

My Generation: Young Chinese Artists
My Generation: Young Chinese Artists is an extended look at the new generation of artists continuing to emerge in mainland China since 2000, the year that China first opened its doors to international artists and that Chinese artists began to command attention in the global arena. All of the artists in this exhibition were born after 1976—the end of the Cultural Revolution. Almost all of the participating artists are products of China’s one-child policy and have grown up in a country with a high-powered market economy. All of them, whether educated in the West or not, have been exposed to global art movements through the internet and, increasingly, liberalized education at China’s art academies. They are ambitious, determined, and technically sophisticated with much to say about their homeland—...
Mood and Memory - Chi Peng
“Endless guessing, endless interruption, and endless memory; I don?t know from which period of stillness to start once more, and from this start how to return to stillness again. Living in a mood, is it from yesterday or today? Many things pass by me, some are still vivid, while some are merely traces. Mood is never better than memory.“ Chi Peng
The “Mood and Memory” exhibition presents the latest body of work by internationally renowned artist Chi Peng (b. 1981) titled “Mood Is Never Better Than Memory”, as well as a selection of his most recognized works from the last several years, including “Catcher” and “19.June.1981”.
In a suite of five large-format panoramic photographs, “Mood Is Never Better Than Memory” presents a surrealistic se...

Chi Peng The Monkey KingChi Peng, barely in his mid-twenties and already an internationally recognised artist, is considered to be o ne o f the most groundbreaking and innovative exponents o f contemporary Chinese art avant-garde. This is due particularly to his superior handling o f digital photography and image-editing. He skilfully fuses actuality and fiction to an artistically generated pseudo-substantiality. Chi Peng is a classical first-person narrator. Already in his early works he repeatedly became a figure and part within his o wn artistic creation. Digitally animated and frequently multiplied, his o wn 'alter ego' becomes a recurring projection-screen in a partly painful reflection o n the urban realities o f today's China - o n new dreams and o ld taboos, o n the still stigmatised issue o f homosexuality. Yet, with ...
