Ullens Center for Contemporary Art announces SEE/SAW. Collective Practice in China Now

Ullens Center for Contemporary Art presents SEE/SAW. Collective Practice in China Now, an exhibition on view November 20–December 30, 2012.

SEE/SAW: Collective Practice in China Now will examine the production processes and decisions involved in creative collaborations, which have become a major trend in the Chinese context during recent years. A prologue to UCCA’s upcoming 2013 exhibition ON|OFF: China’s Young Artists in Concept and Practice, SEE/SAW presents many of the individual artists who will be included in ON/OFF within the context of Chinese contemporary art’s most recent collaborative efforts. For this iterative project, at least thirteen invited artist collectives will rotate in and out of UCCA’s Long Gallery, which will be divided into two spaces. The collectives will be paired and then take turns filling their space in the gallery, each independently conceiving a week-long exhibition. In focusing on the concept of the “group,” SEE/SAW explores the notions of co-dependence and reaction; viewers will, with the exhibition’s weekly reincarnations, be urged to observe how the exhibitions may or may not play off one another. Participating collectives include 8mg, A Diaodui, Art Praxis Space, Cell Art Group, Company, Double Fly Art Center, Guest, Hexie Baroque, Independent Workshop, Irrelevant Commission, LVXIAO, Nanshan Painting Group, North Village, and TOF. Curated by Paula Tsai.
