Xiao Lu: Impossible Dialogue 肖鲁:语嘿



You are invited to join 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art on Saturday, 19 January as we open the exhibition Xiao Lu: Impossible Dialogue 肖鲁:语嘿

Xiao Lu: Impossible Dialogue 肖鲁:语嘿 is the first retrospective of leading contemporary Chinese artist Xiao Lu. The exhibition is anchored by Xiao Lu’s performance work Dialogue from the landmark China/Avant-Garde exhibition at the National Art Gallery, Beijing, in February 1989. This work, in which the artist fires a gun at her own art installation, is a milestone in the development of contemporary art in China. It has also has been read as a critical turning point in China’s recent history. While Dialogue remains an iconic work of that era, it is also one of the most misunderstood pieces of contemporary Chinese art. Xiao Lu: Impossible Dialogue 肖鲁:语嘿 examines Xiao Lu’s creative interest in deep emotion, extreme action, and chance. Spanning a period of 30 years, the exhibition presents significant performance works by Xiao Lu including a new commission that explores the artist’s ongoing connection to Australia.

This opening event starts at 4:00PM with drinks and an opening address.

Click to RSVP to this special event by Sunday 6 January.

Exhibition runs 19 January – 24 March 2019.
Curated by Claire Roberts and Mikala Tai.
