Home Is Where the Haunt Is, the second triennial of X Museum is slated to open on Aug 27 in Beijing.

Co-curated by Wu Dongxue and Rao Kuizhen, the show is a research-based project reviewing the development of contemporary Chinese art over the past three years featuring 19 Chinese millennial artists with multicultural backgrounds, including Zhang Yibei, Shao Chun, Wing Po So and Cao Shu.

On display will be eight newly commissioned works and more than 30 recent works from the participating artists. The show, encompassing kinetic sculpture, e-textile, silk embroidery, site-specific installation and simulation video installation, will be an audio-visual feast, according to the curators.

Zooming in on the 19 Chinese artists growing up in a globalized world, Home Is Where the Haunt Is, aims to unpack the intricate meanings of “home” and discusses topics of intimacy, memory, heritage, ethnicity, possession and obsession, which are often associated with the notions of “home” and “haunt”.

Home Is Where the Haunt Is runs until Nov 26.

If you go:
11 am – 6 pm, Monday to Friday; 11 am - 8 pm, weekends and public holidays
X Museum, Langyuan Station, E1 (Building 10), No.53 Banjieta Road, Chaoyang district, Beijing
