- Astrup Fearnley Museet (at Dronningensgate 4)
Huang Yong Ping (b. 1954) is one of the most outstanding Chinese artists from the ‘first generation’ to adopt a Western concept of art. As a post-conceptual artist, he creates idea-based works with clear references to Duchamp and the readymade tradition.
Huang Young Ping has been concerned about finding an intelligent balance between the Western concept of art and the Chinese art tradition, particularly as regards traditional materials and their uses. His art always tells a story and often includes reflections about society and human existence. Huang Yong Ping lives and works in Paris and Xiamen, China.
The exhibition curators are Gunnar B. Kvaran, Hanne Beate Ueland and Grete Årbu.
The exhibition catalogue is supported by the Centre Culturel Français in Oslo.
