Yang Fudong

Yang Fudong was born in 1971 in Beijing and currently resides in Shanghai. He graduated from the China Academy of Art in 1995. His video art is inspired by Chinese traditions while also conveying a sense of the new, creating theatrical experiences for the viewer. In recent years his output has included installations that use these videos. Conscious of multiple perspectives, his work pursues the structure and form of identity through mythology, personal memories and experiences. He has been internationally acclaimed at such events as Yokohama Triennale 2001, Biennale of Sydney 2010, Venice Biennale 2007, and documenta 2002. His recent major solo exhibitions include “Moving Mountains” (Shanghai Center of Photography, 2016) and “Yang Fudong: The Light That I Feel” (Daegu Art Museum, 2016). His group exhibitions include “What About the Art? Contemporary Art From China” (QM Gallery Al Riwaq, Qatar Museums, Doha, 2016) and “Bentu: Chinese Artists in a Time of Turbulence and Transformation” (Fondation Louis Vuitton, France, 2016).
