LEAP 11

We mark the centennial of the Xinhai Revolution, which overthrew the Qing Dynasty and launched China’s Republican era in 1911, with four stories of people and places distinct to this hundred-year history. Two of these stories look at people, namely the founder of Chinese cartoon, Huang Yao, active in the 1930s, and Hong Kong’s father of modern art, Luis Chan, active throughout most of the twentieth century. The other two examine place, as we wander through Republican Shanghai’s home of revelry for the Everyman, the Great World amusement park, and investigate how we illuminate a century-old revolution today, with the Xinhai Revolution monument, still under construction in Wuhan. Elsewhere we take a look at the affect and allure of video pioneer Zhang Peili, visit a contemporary tangent of rural reconstruction at the Bishan Harvestival, mull over the worth of China’s proliferating art equity exchanges, seek to unravel the threads woven by the up-and-coming Yan Xing, rub elbows with Sterling Ruby, listen in on Hans Ulrich Obrist and Raymond Fung on the question of landscape, and again travel back in time with a delegation of curators led by Okwui Enwezor on a visit to China in 2000.
