When: 22 April - 6 May 2021
Where: 798 Art Zone, 2 Jiuxianqiao Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing 100015

Magician Space marks a new direction with the work of Guo Hongwei in 'The Place of Liveliness'. Guo Hongwei's paintings in recent years focus on differentiated situations that meet the norms but are out of date in the real environment, such as the loss of control of a male teacher on a balance bike, the posture of a bodybuilder in the park that affects the ribbon toss, and the dance linkage and spirit of the nuns Rise.

Long March Space: 'Always being, but not the whole'

When: 20 March 2021
Where: 4 Jiuxianqiao Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing, 100016

Long March Space will present 'Always being, but not the whole', a new solo exhibition by the renowned new media, performance, and installation artist Wang Jianwei who has received accolades from institutions around the world including the Guggenheim in New York. This exhibition will feature an installation of paintings and sculptures that showcase the artist’s contemplations and artistic practice since he began to focus on Speculative Realism and Object-Oriented Ontology in recent years.

When: 10 April - 12 May 2021
Where: A05, 797 East Street, 798 Art Zone, No.2 Jiuxianqiao Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing 100015

'In the World' focuses on Liu Huanzhang’s animal and figure sculptures in the 1980s, as well as a selection of a handful of works that have lasted over the years. Liu Huanzhang, born in 1930, is a long-distance runner in the history of art. He has personally experienced several major stages of the modernisation of Chinese art since 1949. His teenage years spanned the change of regime in the late 1940s and the dramatic changes in Chinese society at the turn of the 1940s and 1950s. Huanzhang’s work is a kind of breeze and drizzle rhetoric that belongs to the contemporary Chinese lifestyle. 

Galerie Urs Meile: 'SNAPSHOT'

When: 13 March - 5 May 2021
Where: B01, 798 Art District, No.2 Jiuxianqiao Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing

Tang Contemporary Art presents 'Rejuvenation' by Xu Qu, a new series created from 2020 to 2021, including nearly twenty works of paintings and installations. From the enormous moai sculptures on Rapa Nui (Easter Island) to the spiritual embodiments of Western theories of civilisation to the politicised vision of miniaturised landmarks in the Beijing World Park, Xu Qu summons dialectical images and the possibility of rejuvenation or resurrection from more distant geographical scales and nearer sites of circulation.

When: 20 March - 2 May 2021
Where: No.2, 798 West Street, 798 Art District, Chaoyang District 2/F, Beijing

Hunsand Space will be featuring Zhu Yingying's third solo exhibition 'Rabbit Hole' until 2 May. The exhibition comprises five series of paintings that have been completed over the last two years since the artist's latest solo show, 'Nymph'. With a creative impulse grounded on observing the “image". Zhu Yingying's works on canvas have embodied a gradual process as such observation zooms in on the objects - a progression from portraying the entire image to focusing on the peripheries, and now examining the details while enlarging them. Compared to her previous works, a shift of the painted medium took place – changing from oil on board to oil on canvas.

Ginko Space: 'No Place for Subjectivity to Stand'

When: 20 March - 8 May 2021
Where: No.4 Jiuxianqiao Rd., Chaoyang Dst., 100015, Beijing

Gingko Space features Du Jie’s solo exhibition 'No Place for Subjectivity to Stand', marking the artist’s second solo exhibition in the space that showcases her recent exploration with twenty small-scale acrylic paintings on canvas. In this exhibition, the artist revisits her early approach to small-scale acrylic paintings on canvas. She often lays down a monochromatic ground to start before she lends her hands to the brushes. Instead of setting up a plan in her head, she prefers following freely the natural movement of her hands.

Hive Center for Contemporary Art: 'Jiahua Vision'

When: 27 March - 5 May 2021
Where: 2 Jiuxianqiao Rd, 798 Art Zone, Building E06, Chaoyang District, Beijing, 100012

The exhibition is curated by Zhao Xiaodan and will present the artist’s paintings and video works from the past two years. 'Jiahua Vision' is the first exhibition at Hive in 2021. It will be an important exhibition for the upcoming Gallery Week Beijing. It also serves as a continued promotion for the collective presentation of a generation of artists born in the 80s after the exhibition The Salvation of Shahrazad: Memo of the New Generation Painting in 2020. This exhibition, Jiahua Vision, is Qian Jiahua’s third solo exhibition at Hive since Free Diffusion (2014) and Qian Jiahua: Breathe (2017). The exhibition will last until May 5, 2021.
