Guishan Mountain series

Since 2006, Mao Xuhui, a leading figure in Chinese contemporary art, has made many visits to the Guishan Mountain area where members of the Sani community of the Yi ethnic group live. The area is some 100 kilometers from Kunming, Yunnan province, where Mao has lived since childhood. Mao has experienced a simple and self-sufficient life in the villages there. He says time seems frozen in Guishan, and he feels like he has found eternity and calmness, and new reasons to keep on painting. Mao's Guishan series of paintings are on show at The History of Eternity: Forty Years of Mao Xuhui 1980-2021, a retrospective exhibition reviewing his artistic development over the past four decades, beginning with his active days during a vanguard art movement in Yunnan and Sichuan provinces in the 1980s. The exhibition, being held at Tang Contemporary Art Beijing through Aug 26, shows oil paintings, ink works on paper, drawings and mixed-media creations to encompass distinctive motifs and styles from Mao's career. It is a document of not only an individual's continuous self-reflection and tireless creativity but also serves as a mirror of the evolution of Chinese contemporary art.

11 am-6:30 pm, Tuesday to Sunday. D06&B01, 798, 2 Jiuxianqiao Road, Chaoyang district, Beijing. 010-5762-3060.
