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...
Han Lei third exhibition opening at the M97 GalleryM97 Gallery is pleased to present “Spiral”, an exhibition of 3D lenticular color photographs by Chinese artist Han Lei. This is Han Lei's third solo exhibition at M97 and the first time this new body of work is exhibited.
Beginning in the 1980s, Han Lei’s career has gone on to be one of the most diverse and influential in China for his ongoing exploration of photography as visual art. Working in still photography, video, and painting over the course of the past two decades, Han Lei’s "Spiral" series blurs the lines between different genres and artistic media.
For the past two years, Han Lei has been experimenting with grating plates to create three-dimensional images; a process the artist finds as intriguing as traditional media such as silver gelatin prints. His enthusiasm fo...
The light of Day - Han Leim97 Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of photography works by Beijing-based artist HAN Lei. The Light of Day exhibition features works from his acclaimed Portraits and Pagodas series, as well as new works from 2009. This is Han Lei’s first solo exhibition in Shanghai since 2004.
As one of the first generation of artists in China to make a name for himself with his photographs, Han Lei has been at the forefront of art photography in China for nearly 20 years, producing works in a variety of genres and artistic mediums and consistently exploring and experimenting with both the ordinary and the absurd.
Han Lei’s Portraits often focus on the quintessential. Seemingly unconventional subjects become superlative embodiments of deeper social or psychological motifs....
Group Photography Exhibition - PARALLAXParallax is the effect whereby the distance between two objects appears to shift when viewed from different vantage points and can help determine an otherwise unknown distance. Following on this concept, the "Parallax" exhibition places together two or more works by each artist from different times in their career. Creating an imaginary sense of distance by juxtaposing photographs of different size, subject matter, and year of creation presents an opportunity for the viewer to see how the artist's focus and technique has developed creatively or conceptually and how the style of their work has changed or remained consistent.
By bringing together photographs from different bodies of work by each artist from different stages in their career, "Parallax" highlights the evolution of each artist's style a...
EXQUISITE CORPSE: China Surrealm97 Gallery Shanghai is pleased to present "EXQUISITE CORPSE: China Surreal", a dynamic group exhibition of photographic works. Co-curated by Mathieu Borysevicz and m97 Gallery, this exhibition uses the Surrealists' game of Exquisite Corpse as a means to explore the collective subconscious of contemporary Chinese artists through the medium of photography. Twenty emerging and established artists present uncanny images arranged in a delicately composed sequence of non-sequiturs that reveal the surreality of today's China.
"Poetry must be made by all and not by one." - Comte de Lautréamont
The Exquisite Corpse game began in France in 1925 around a table of poets and artists. In this improvisational game a player would write a phrase on a sheet of paper, fold the paper to cover part of it, and ...
Asie et contes d'extrême orientL'une des facettes les plus surprenantes de l'Extrême Orient est la coexistence de réalités de vie souvent très rudes avec des mondes de rêve aussi fascinants qu'opulents. Il en émerge des univers d´opéras chargés de costumes à forte puissance symbolique. Ces tenues sont transposées, au travers des élégants et romantiques films de Hong Kong, au-delà des coulisses méditatives que représentent les montagnes et les jardins, au coeur même des anciennes et modernes mégapoles. Ce qui est remarquable est, qu'aux yeux des contemporains, ces mondes parallèles ont la même importance.
Il est aisé de se perdre dans la culture asiatique, le temps d'une soirée, que ce soit dans des r&oci...

La galerie Polaris présentera un ensemble de portraits noir et blanc, réalisés en 2004-2005, tirages aux sels d'argents, 150 x 120 cm.
Réalisés à partir de personnages rencontrés dans la rue de la capitale Chinoise, tant les acteurs de théâtre, que les portraits d'adolescents, tous symbolisent pour l'artiste, un aspect traditionnel qui tend à se perdre dans la représentation photographique contemporaine chinoise.
Han lei s'est fait connaître dès 1996 par des photographies de scènes de rues, puis il y a deux ans par des séries de paysages montagneux. Refusant la direction provocatrice de tant de ses autres confrères, Han Lei, au contrair...
