Cross Galaxy: Ding Yi's Solo Exhibition MOCAUP, Shenzhen
Artists who have left their mark on art history have eyes that look reversely at the values and circumstances of the times. Although these thoughts and attitudes sometimes face adverse effects, they become a motivation to guide artists to a unique new path and provide an important opportunity to differentiate the purpose and value of art. Ding Yi's artistic genes seem to have an anti-aesthetic determination to self-exclude and isolate himself from the existing flow. This may be an important factor that made Ding Yi's art today.

Yoshitomo Nara’s First Australian Solo Exhibition
From 26 February to 25 June 2023, Yoshitomo Nara: Reach Out to The Moon, Even If We Can't will be on view at The Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA). This show marks Yoshitomo Nara's first Australian solo exhibition and brings together major sculptural works alongside paintings, drawings, ceramics, and photography by the world-renowned artist. Nara rose to international prominence in the 1990s for his exquisitely rendered, instantly recognisable portraits of alternately sweet and vicious big-headed figures and melancholic figurative sculptures. His work in all mediums is the result of his innovative distillation of an enormous array of references and inspirations. These include memories of growing up in rural Northern Japan amidst the lingering presence of World War II, political events of the 1960s and 1970s, the sound and graphics of pop, rock and folk music, literature, art from Japan’s Edo and modern period, as well as the new expressionism he encountered while studying and living in Germany in the late 1980s and 1990s. All of which, and more, is finely honed into work that is both intimate and worldly, full of rebellious protest and powerful poise.
