Chinese artist Huang Rui spent nearly two decades in Japan after founding the Stars Group in Beijing in 1979. For the first time we will explore the works of Huang Rui during this period along side some of his contemporaries including Suga Kishio and Koshimizu Susumu, two important figures in the Mono-Ha movement in Japan. Chiba Shigeo (art critic and lecturer at Chubu University) is the academic director of the exhibition. Chiba Shigeo will hold a brunch-time talk with Huang Rui on Friday March 25th from 10am-12pm.
Huang Rui, (b. 1952, Beijing) is one of China’s most highly regarded artists. He was one of the main protagonists of the first non-conformist art groups in 1979 China, called The Stars Group (Xing Xing). Huang Rui has sought to express art’s function as a reflection of society and its strength in addressing contemporary concerns.
