LEAP 3

This issue centers on a collection of texts and images that look to pinpoint China’s emerging cultural relationship with a continent. This includes a look at the Chinese presence in Dakar through the eyes of one of Senegal’s leading artists Amadou Kane Sy, an extended consideration of the work of Kehinde Wiley, whose paintings, made in Beijing, incorporate African bodies and motifs, and a portfolio of recent works by Chinese artists examining African questions. Elsewhere, the issue includes an extended report on the architecture of museums in converted spaces, a conversation between Yang Fudong and Isaac Julien on the latter’s Ten Thousand Waves, features on Donna Ong and Yang Xinguang, a round-up of the spring auction highlights in Chinese landscape painting, and a portfolio of “unrealized projects” (with apologies to LEAP contributing editor Hans Ulrich Obrist) by Hong Kong artists curated by Nadim Abbas. The top section includes short takes on New York returnee Zhang Wei and a studio chat with Li Songsong; the bottom reviews section highlights shows by Yin Xiuzhen, Olafur Eliasson and Ma Yansong, and Zhou Tiehai, as well as Minsheng Art Museum’s inaugural exhibition “30 Years of Painting.”
